Hebridean Desk Address Book

by Mairi Hedderwick - Find out more about the author

This desk address book is attractively illustrated with acclaimed illustrator Mairi Hedderwick’s beautiful sketches of seasonal Western Island scenes.

The sketches have been collected over a period of forty years, and both the old and the new are represented here, showing the changing faces of the landscapes. Mairi’s sketches range across most of the isles, from Tiree to St Kilda, expertly capturing their differences and characters.

Mairi Hedderwick was born in Gourock, Scotland. At seventeen she took a job as a mother’s help on the Isle of Coll in the Hebrides, beginning a life-long love affair with islands and their small communities. Her children were brought up there and now some of her grandchildren. Mairi’s island world is delightfully reflected in the imaginary island of Struay where her perennially popular Katie Morag stories are set. As well as creating children’s books Mairi writes and illustrates travel books for adults. She also illustrated the acclaimed Janet Reachfar books, which are published by Birlinn.
