We are proud and excited to announce that our first digital publication, Close-Knit, has now been published.

If you have an iPad we would love to hear what you think?

From the press release:

Close-Knit: A fresh view of Scottish social history through the eyes of a contemporary artist.

Close-Knit is a 50 page digital book for the iPad (a book as an App) published by COFFEE TABLE for those with an interest in contemporary art, Scottish social history and the home life of a crofter in the 1800s.

Created by Julia Douglas, this book presents the outcome of her Artist Residency in Timespan Museum and Arts Centre in Helmsdale, Sutherland, Scotland.

It contains stunning images of the North East coast of Scotland, snippets of gathered information and quotes about life in the crofts, alongside images of the artist’s works, which include fiery flower installations in gable ends, a satirical spoof Estate Agent’s document that aims to sell you a ruined croft on a cliff edge in Caithness, a knitted installation made as a cross-generational collaboration and an *award winning rusty old bucket with a new beautifully woven bottom.

Why not share Coffee With A Lid's news on the sociables...
