Hay: Landscape, Literature and a Town of Books
Published by Seren
The border town of Hay-on-Wye is famous for two things: the annual Festival of Literature (now in its 31st year) and its stunning location.
Jim Saunders new book is a photographic record and words about Hay-on-Wye, its environs and people. The result is a record of the relationship in which a landscape of great natural beauty shapes a people, and a people shape a very special place.
Jim Saunders is a photographer based in Knighton. He is the author of Offa’s Dyke (Gomer/BBC Wales, 2006), and is a former Offa’s Dyke Trail Officer. He has also published Natur y flwyddyn, a book of nature photographs (Gomer 2007), and regularly lectures about his photography, which has been published by Aurum, Chatto, Penguin, Thames & Hudson, BBC History, Heritage Magazine and the Countryside Council for Wales, as well as newspapers.
