Description

Wild Island: A Year in the Hebrides, by Jane Smith

This is a book for anyone interested in wildlife, for art lovers, for tourists wanting a memento of their holiday, for everyone who loves the west coast of Scotland

It depicts a year in the life of Oronsay, a remote island that is farmed by the RSPB for the benefit of wildlife, and follows artist Jane Smith as she attempts to portray the interactions of wildlife, farm animals and human inhabitants

A humorous, first-hand, personal view of island life, both human and otherwise, and is illustrated with Jane's vibrant and acutely observed sketches, paintings and prints

Themes include:

The trials of a wildlife artist - what does it feel like to sit in a bog all day? What is screen printing? Where are a bird's knees? Why does Jane always get covered in acrylic paint?

Natural history - from otters to oil beetles, this book is full of wild encounters

Conservation management - sounds boring? Think of it more as 'how to grow a peregrine

West coast living - the ridiculous things that happen when living on a remote island, cut off from the rest of the world

Dimensions: 19 x 2.3 x 23.5 cm
