Ootlier issue 1: The Drymen show.
Held since 1816, the Drymen show is an important annual occasion for the rural communities of Strathendrick. Cattle, sheep and working animals of all kinds compete for prestigious local prizes, and the spectacle of mighty Clydesdale horses drawing carts and carriages is guaranteed to draw a crowd. But the show is the work of people too, and in this beautifully designed small book, we document the shared endeavour of the humans and animals who contribute to its continued popularity and success. With photography by Tom Barr and an introductory essay by Kate Davies, Ootlier issue 1 is produced in celebration of the hard work of the Drymen show--Scotland's oldest 1 day agricultural event.
