EXPLORING THE COASTS & SHORES OF FAIR  ISLE
by Elizabeth Riddiford

Fair Isle's dramatic and varied coastal landscape has much to offer those who have time to explore. Including some suggested coastal walks, this booklet illustrates some of the richness and variety of Fair Isle's important maritime resource and why the Fair Isle community strives to protect it. Whilst introducing the reader to this richness and variety, there is still much more to discover and a reference/suggested further reading list is included at the back of the booklet for those interested in finding out more.

32 pp. Illustrated with colour photo's & black & white line drawings.

Price TBA
 

Handwork
edited by Anne Sinclair

In Fair Isle and Sorsele, Nord Trondelag and Steigen, artisans of the past helped enable their communities to survive through the sustainable production and decoration of articles made from wool, wood and metal. Handwork we hope, will give the reader a taste of their legacy and of some of those skills which continue into the present day.  

40 pp (in three columns, English, Norwegian & Swedish). Illustrated with colour & black and white photo's.

AIR ISLE: ITS MARITIME RESOURCE DURING THE 20TH CENTURY
by Emma Perring

"At the end of the nineteenth century, the crofter-fishermen of Fair Isle were able to row out to sea less than a kilometre and catch a yoal full of fish in half an hour. The waters surrounding Fair Isle were teeming with fish, and it was primarily this resource that supported the men and their families: through export and for home consumption. Yet today no islander is employed at the fishing." Based on Fair Isle diaries this booklet explores the changes in fishing stocks around the isle during the 20th century and what impact this has had on the community.

32 pp. Illustrated with a mixture of colour, black & white photo's and line drawings.

A TASTE OF THE NORTH
edited by Emma Perring

"Taste of the North" introduces some of the rich and varied traditional foods found within Fair Isle and northern areas of Norway and Sweden. Some recipes are still used widely within the regions, but the collection of others required knowledge to be passed down through the generations, inspiring community involvement across the ages. We hope you will also be inspired and enjoy sampling our traditional fare!

40 pp (in three columns, English, Norwegian & Swedish). Illustrated with colour & black and white photo's.
