No need to go over the sea to Skye to appreciate it’s beauty – thanks to this innovative photographic ‘framebook’ readers can now experience the dramatic and beautiful Isle of Skye without leaving the comfort of their armchairs, and have photographs of the island which they can hang on their walls at home.
ICP Framebooks are designed to allow the easy extraction of the many full-page photographs for framing once the reader has enjoyed the book. To this end, there is no text on these pages, just a simple white border surrounding the high quality prints. If they prefer to keep their book intact, readers have the option of ordering prints from the author’s website.
The largest and northernmost major island of the Inner Hebrides, Skye has been enchanting visitors for centuries. With the recent exciting archaeological and paleontological discoveries, and its increasingly high profile as a film location – Michael Fassbender’s Macbeth being the latest – it’s a good time for a new book on one of the nation’s most popular destinations.
Skye’s varied landscape encompasses wild beaches, towering coastal cliffs, magical caves, revered mountain ranges, the Fairy Pools and Glen, and the picturesque harbourside ‘capital’, Portree, all of which have been capturing the hearts of tourists for generations.
These and many other facets of Skye are displayed in captivating full-page photographs. Along with this, Glasgow born author and photographer Iain Campbell provides informative and interesting text on Skye’s history, Celtic legends, archaeology, and complex geology. Sections feature the famous Cuillin ranges, the imposing Trotternish Ridge, feuds between the MacDonald and MacLeod clans, and how the island’s story is told through the remnants of the past layered upon its ancient landscape.
