Antlers of Water
The first collection of its kind, Antlers of Water showcases the diversity of contemporary Scottish nature writing.
Edited, curated and introduced by the award-winning Kathleen Jamie, and featuring prose, poetry and photography, this inspiring collection takes us from walking to wild swimming, from red deer to pigeons and wasps, from remote islands to back gardens.
With contributions from Amy Liptrot, Malachy Tallack, Chitra Ramaswamy, Jim Crumley, Amanda Thomson, Karine Polwart and many more, Antlers of Water urges us to renegotiate our relationship with the more-than-human world, in writing which is by turns celebratory, radical and political.
“A selection of luminous essays, poems and visual art … The most intuitive pieces reflect that nature is not something to be explored on weekends and in nice weather but through everyday rituals” The Times
