Beyond Words has been running a pop up shop at Stills Gallery, Cockburn Street, Edinburgh which will continue until 22 December, open 11am – 6pm, 7 days a week.
On Tuesday 10 December, from 6.30, I will be one of the speakers at Stills to celebrate the photo book. I have been asked to select one book that is particularly important to me - what an impossible task! Other speakers will include Deirdre MacKenna, retiring Director of Stills, photographer and educator Robin Gillanders and Samantha Woods of Fruitmarket Gallery, formerly of Phaidon Press.
Join us for a night of festive fun where invited guests will give short presentations about their favourite photography books. Peruse the shelves of Beyond Words pop-up bookshop and browse the list of up-coming courses available at Stills.

We've just received signed copies of Ragnar Axelsson's latest, Behind the Mountains. For those who don't know, Ragnar is a superb Icelandic photographer who documents the life of rural Iceland in a very lyrical fashion. "The photographs in Behind the Mountains, of sheep roundups in ravines and mountain hills, in wild snowstorms and rain, near glaciers and across rugged lava, paint a realistic and compelling picture of traditional farming and its interaction with the harsh landscape."
We have also received signed copies of a brand new edition of his previous book, Last Days of the Arctic.
