Our cover for The New Road is now ready.
Using Claudia Massie’s Scottish landscape painting, our production and design team have made this beautiful cover for our edition of The New Road.
Our edition of The New Road will include a map of the journey that the protagonist, Aeneas MacMaster, takes through the Highlands.
We are pleased to be able to show you the beautiful work in progress from the talented Ruta Paskeviciute. Find more about it under Map under About the Book above.
“And I don’t like letters. They make trouble. They’re sly and underhand. They may be going past ye in broad daylight and you not know. I never write a letter myself if I can help it; it’s putting words in jail, and it’s not the man alone who puts them in can get them out again; too many have the keys.”
– Ninian Macgregor
The second part of our reading is now online. Reading this time are Karolina from Poland, Mariliis from Estonia, and Stefanie from Germany.
The students on the MSc Publishing course are from all around the world, so we thought that it would be nice if you could hear our collection of different accents, whilst also listening to an extract of The New Road. This extract comes from Chapter Twenty Four, and reading out this first section are Carmen from Spain, Hannah from England and Ester from Iceland. We hope to get the written extract up soon to accompany the audio, and more recordings will be coming soon. Enjoy!
We have received some beautiful Scottish landscape paintings from Claudia Massie to put up on the website.
Please find them under Illustrations in About the Book above. All the images will be on show in her forthcoming solo exhibition from May – July at The Ruthven Gallery.
