From the publisher

From the early 1960s to the late 1980s, George Mackay Brown either wrote new Christmas poems which were printed on Christmas cards sent by his close friends, or, as the years went on, he designed his own cards, commissioning art from friends and family and again including original verse compositions.
This book reproduces all the known cards, the majority of which were found in the possession of his great niece living in Stromness, George’s home town throughout most of his life.
They are a complete delight and will be a must for all of Mackay Brown’s numerous and devoted followers. But they also open a door into this remarkable man’s life which will have an appeal to an audience far beyond the shores of Orkney at Christmas time.
