Working the Map

Working the Map

Sponsored by RSPB, Orkney Nature Festival and Cape Farewell, “Working the Map” is an anthology of writings, poems and illustrations about islanders in a changing environment.

It includes conversations with farmers and fishermen as well as essays by naturalists and archival observations.

The drawings for this publication were done as a visual diary in a small handmade sketchbook crafted by Fiona Cumming.

The book includes poems by Morag MacInnes, Yvonne Gray and Pamela Beasant.
