Product story

A Line in the Water is a unique collaboration between the artist and Royal Academician Norman Ackroyd and the eminent Scottish poet Douglas Dunn. Reproductions of 80 prints are interleaved with 15 poems, including ‘Working with Norman’, based on Ackroyd and Dunn’s visit to the most northerly point of the British Isles, the Muckle Flugga lighthouse.
