Malachy Tallack Discusses 'The Un-Discovered Islands'
Wed 12 October 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Golden Hare Books is proud to announce we will be hosting the launch party for The Un-Discovered Islands, the beautiful new book written by Malachy Tallack and illustrated by Katie Scott.
Critically-acclaimed author Malachy Tallack returns with a brand new excursion into the beautiful, mysterious and mythical landscapes of the world with The Un-Discovered Islands. Gathered in this book are over twenty islands that have decidedly human origins, whether they are the products of imagination, deception or simply human error. They are phantoms, fakes and legends: an archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands. From the well-known myths of Atlantis to the more obscure legends of Thule and Antilla, from the islands of pure fiction to others whose existence are still in question, Malachy has created an atlas of fairytale and wonder. This time Malachy’s prose will be accompanied by glorious full colour illustrations from Katie Scott. She has worked with The New York Times, Converse, Urban Outfitters and the BBC. She is the illustrator of the beautiful Animalium.
Malachy Tallack has written for the New Statesman, the Guardian, Caught by the River and many other publications, online and in print. He won a New Writers’ Award from Scottish Book Trust in 2014, and the Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship in 2015. He is from Shetland, and currently lives in Glasgow.
