A Journey Across Years
By: Tom Mongan
This Book takes us on a journey across the years; pre-electricity days and nights growing up behind the Twelve Bens of Connemara in a thatched cottage, with the Atlantic Ocean coming up to touch a field of wild flowers just in front of the house.
Front cover: An artist work by Joe Boske.

A Portrait of Connemara book gives stunning Photos and wonderfully new perspective of wild landscapes, intimate portraits and untamed mountains.

Joe Boske is one of Ireland’s most recognisable visual artists.

Now, we bring you Buying Yak Milk in Gurtymadden – its all in the title. Its not the easiest book to categorise so perhaps we will leave it to the inimitable author, Mr. Boske, to explain: ‘Daft Verse, Worse Prose, No ns e ns e, Surreal Yarns and SurRealEr… Cartoons’.
Buying Yak Milk in Gurtymadden will appeal to anyone with a keen sense of humour, an appreciation of wordplay, and enjoys casting a critical eye on contemporary mores and morals. (Text taken from Artisan house)
