Accompanying the immense success of the Hebridean diaries and address books, Birlinn has added a birthday book to its attractive range of
Hebridean stationery. Illustrated throughout with Mairi Hedderwick's beautiful sketches of the Hebrides, this hardback book is the perfect way to
remember birthdays of friends and family. It also makes an excellent gift.
Mairi Hedderwick was born in Gourock, Scotland. At seventeen she took a job as a mother's help on the Isle of Coll in the Hebrides, beginning a life-long love affair with islands and their small communities. Her children were brought up there and now some of her grandchildren. Mairi's island world is delightfully reflected in the imaginary island of Struay where her perennially popular Katie Morag stories are set. As well as creating children's books Mairi writes and illustrates travel books for adults, including Highland Journey and Sea Change (Birlinn 2009). She also illustrated the acclaimed Janet Reachfar books, which are published by Birlinn.
