St Kilda - The Silent Islands (Book)

20.00

"What a remarkable book this is: testimony to a commitment of method, a brilliance of eye and a subtlety of spirit." - Robert Macfarlane.

The islands of the St Kilda archipelago, the most remote part of the British Isles, lie 100 miles to the west of mainland Scotland in the North Atlantic. Famous for the evacuation of 1930 which saw the end of a way of life, the islands have often been obscured in myth and romance. This book aims to change these perceptions with a series made over several years, and many visits out to the islands.

A hardback, with 192 pages, St Kilda - The Silent Islands contains over 80 images, includes a preface by Murdo Macdonald RSA, a hard hitting essay on the myth and reality of St Kilda by Dr Kevin Grant who was the islands archaeologist, and poetry from Gerry Cambridge and Myles Campbell. The book has been carefully designed by one of Scotland's finest designers Lachlan Young, and will be published by Luath Books in Edinburgh in April 2018.

We have tried to create something special, affordable, and printed to a high standard, all in beautiful duotone. The book is available now for £20 + P&P and will be dispatched to you as soon as it comes off the printers.
