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

Details

Award winning photographers Ross Gillespie and Tricia Malley are among Scotland's most experienced and insightful photographers. They have worked together for almost 20 yeas under the name of broad daylight and have an instinctive eye for capturing the character and personality behind their subject. Their work will be known to many through the front covers of Ian Rankin's famous Rebus novels (as well as the stunning photographs throughout 'Rebus's Scotland A Personal Journey'). Tricia's background as a documentary photographer combined with Ross's background as an illustrator has created an almost unique collaboration which allows art to frequently and successfully mimic life in a seriously powerful fashion. They have an enormous capacity for empathy with their subjects and as a result get well below the superficial.
