Commissioned as an introduction to the Orkney Islands and accompanied by reproductions of the wonderful illustrations of Sylvia Wishart, George Mackay Brown’s seminal work An Orkney Tapestry provides a unique looking glass into Orkney through the eyes of a poet.

A precursor to the nature writing prominent in the late 1970s, An Orkney Tapestry encapsulates the key style of George Mackay Brown even though it was published at such an early stage in his career (1969). Brown reaches back into Orkney’s past commenting on what was and what is, as he viewed the islands he grew up knowing. As to be expected from Brown, the prose is beautifully constructed and a must ready for anyone interested in Orkney.
