This Is Scotland : A Country in Words and Pictures (Paperback) (Daniel Gray)
about this item
A Scotsman and an Englishman, a camera and a notebook. The pictures tell a thousand stories, the words tell the time. This is every day Scotland, captured at its most crucial point for 300 years.
United by a love of Scotland, warts and all, especially the warts, in fact, Gray and McCredie set out on a journey high and low, mainland and island, rust and heather, to document a country and its people. Here is a nation caught and sketched in time; not shortbread-tin Scotland, but the normal, beautifully disjointed one. It is a Scotland of flaking pub signs and sneaky ****** outside the bingo, of Italian cafes and proper fitba’ grounds, of craggy farmers and disinterested sheep.
Stunning images are coupled with lyrical prose in a highly-original Caledonian love-letter.
