Book

Tek Hod, Embroidered Wrestlers of the North | David Ellison

Regular price £20.00

 

This wonderful book from documentary photographer David Ellison captures the spectacle, tradition and costume of Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling. 

 

A coming together of the idyllic countryside of the Lake District, of the flamboyance of the wrestlers' hand-embroidered costumes, of local fairs, sporting events and communal gatherings. This book affords us a glimpse of something beautiful and ancient, something embedded in place. Unfortunately, like many other folk traditions, it is something under threat and vanishing from our landscape.
