A photo blog

I went home to the Outer Hebrides and took some photos along the way. I did a 100km single-speed bike-ride to maintain my training schedule. I confess I am insane for doing my charity cycle against the prevailing Hebridean winds! Anyway, here are my photos. Enjoy! 🙂 x

http://issuu.com/birlinn_ltd/docs/spring_catalogue

The new Birlinn/Polygon catalogue is here! Does the cover look familiar to you? It should! The paperback of “These Islands, We Sing” is coming very soon!
Click on the link to leaf through the Spring 2012 catalogue.
This picture (below) is of the hardback front cover. The paperback cover has a quotation from England’s greatest living poet, Simon Armitage. I’ll post an image of it when I get one. The hardback had great reviews and has sold well. Onwards!
