Description: For decades the printmaker Norman Ackroyd CBE RA has been fascinated by the Hebrides and the ‘outlier islands’, the archipelago lying to the north-west of mainland Scotland. Inhabited since prehistoric times, some of the islands are now deserted and rarely visited. The urge to see them for himself has been the impulse behind Ackroyd’s many journeys to these remote locations. This book brings together a selection of the original plein-air watercolour sketches, some produced under arduous conditions of weather and sea, which have provided the basis for many of his most memorable etchings.
