Luath Press Ltd

Luath Press takes its name from Robert Burns, whose little collie Luath (Gael., swift or nimble) tripped up Jean Armour at a wedding and gave him the chance to speak to the woman who was to be his wife and the abiding love of his life. Burns called one of ' The Twa Dogs' Luath after Cuchullin's hunting dog in Ossian's Fingal. Luath Press was established in 1981 in the heart of Burns country, and is now based a few steps up the road from Burns' first lodgings on Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

Product Description


"This book is lightning from a clear sky.

For one who has spent many years contemplating the vastaterra which is the landscape of contemporary art, the words of the writer - clear, lucid, limpid as a summer stream - offer hope and consolation.

Here is a vision of art which is supremely sane, lit with the light of heaven which can be touched with our fingers, called by St Thomas Aquinas organa organorum, the tool of tools, then held close in the dizzy course of time so that truth might be known in our world.

This book should be read by all those who care about the fate of art in our times.”
