‘Venturing into memories of childhood and family, and looking ahead to the future, The Bonniest Companie is a visionary response to a year shaped and charged by both local and global forces; it will stand as a remarkable document of our times’.

The hardback and paperback editions are beautifully produced. To see the making of the cover artwork, scroll down a couple of posts…it wasn’t that long ago, and now it is in print! Official publication date is the end of October. To pre-order a copy, go to a good bookshop near you, or to one of these: a gem of a bookshop in Grantown on Spey, inadvertantly keeping the fish safe. The town used to be known for it’s fishing, now it is known for it’s bookshop! a jewel in the crown of the town where Mary Queen of Scots was born, we didn’t get to visit the castle when we were there, only the bookshop, and whatever you are looking for, it is well worth a visit.

I am very pleased to say we will be hosting a special launch of The Bonniest Companie with a reading by Kathleen Jamie, and an exhibition of the original artwork, at the gallery here in Belford later in November. Watch this space….

      Dear Sally, Thank you for your kind words, it is good to know that the book is being enjoyed! I hope you have the hardback version, it has more fold outs andther details. If you are ever passing through Northumberland, come and see us at the workshop, we have all the books here. Happy Christmas, Olivia
