Argyll’s Secret Coast – Kate Davies

 28,50 incl. BTW

Join Kate, Tom and friends on a journey through a beautiful corner of Argyll

Through words and pictures, knitting and writing, history and photography, this book explores the beautiful and intriguing landscape of Cowal, also known as Argyll’s Secret Coast. Geographically proximate to lowland Scotland but topographically distinct; separated from the Highlands by land, yet united to the whole of Argyll by water; Cowal’s is a landscape of hidden places, surprising tales, and many secrets.

This book celebrates the Secret Coast, but while doing so it also asks a series of larger questions about what it means to make—and make-up—the story of a place. How do we read the traces of the past in the spaces of the present? What do we see when we look at Cowal’s marginal and coastal landscapes? Which local tales are best remembered, and which narratives really deserve commemoration?

The book includes brand-new designs by Kate, beautiful photography by Tom, and a series of thought-provoking essays exploring the history, landscape and built heritage of the Secret Coast from writers Alex Hale, Michael Hartley, Jamie Stewart Jones, Gilbert Márkus and Stephen Mullen.

The West Highland Way
The West Highland Way – Kate Davies
"Knit, Read, Walk: The West Highland Way Kate Davies and Tom Barr live by Scotland’s best-loved long-distance walking route: the West Highland Way. In this collaborative creative project they celebrate their home, their workplace, and the landscape which inspires them every day. Kate began by creating a collection of twelve hand-knit designs, each with its own distinctive story to tell. Balanced equally between garments and accessories, you might choose to knit a tweedy cardigan which echoes the mossy palette of Conic Hill, a delicate jumper recalling a favourite plant found on Rannoch Moor, or a shawl sparked by the energy of the Highlands’ first “electric village”. Each design is paired with an exploratory essay which sets Kate’s designs and inspiration in their richer context. From Rob Roy’s romantic (mis)representation to the beautiful songs of Donnchadh Bàn; from Loch Lomond’s built environment to ways of seeing Rannoch Moor, Kate’s writing reveals the West Highland Way as, first and foremost, a social landscape with an important cultural history. Kate’s words and designs are accompanied by Tom’s stunning photography, depicting the West Highland Way in all seasons of the year.  Why not turn these pages to walk, read and knit with Kate and Tom? Open up this book, join them on their journey, and make your own West Highland Way." (Bron: Ravelry) Dit boek is inclusief Ravelry-code.
