Enjoy this Scottish Gaelic translation of the beloved 1908 novel, Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. A stunning collectors addition for fans of the original novel or an opportunity to relive Anne’s story in a way it has never been experienced before, Anna Ruadh is sure to become a beloved addition to your bookshelf or summer read.

Set in the 19th century, Anna Ruadh follows the story of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan girl who is mistakenly sent to two middle-aged siblings, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who had intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm on Prince Edward Island.

The Tattoo Handbook Collection

As we continue to work toward expanding our Tattoo Handbook collection, we have two books that we are currently working toward getting on the shelves: The Welsh Tattoo Handbook by Robert Davis and Meagan Davis, and The Scots Tattoo Handbook by Duncan Sneddon.

Our Tattoo Handbook collection is the perfect “think before you ink” guide to accurate and ethical tattoos in Celtic languages! Featuring illustrations of real-life Gaelic tattoos gone wrong, tips on how to incorporate the language into a tattoo design that honours and supports the culture, language, and speakers; a brief history and description of the Gaelic language; and a glossary of words and phrases suitable for tattoos.

Ròs Fiadhaich

This Scottish Gaelic edition of the graphic novel Wild Rose by Nicola R. White is a historical graphic novel set against the backdrop of London and rural Ireland in 1790. Wild Rose reimagines a haunting Irish folktale. The story of Eliza Day is a tale of love and revenge, class conflict, religious intolerance, and the secret societies that became common in eighteenth-century Ireland. A story of love, betrayal, magic, and bravery, Ròs Fiadhaich is a graphic novel not to miss.

Graphic novels are a fantastic learning tool for adult Gaelic learners. With the art there to help you better understand what is going on, it acts as a great technique to help learn new languages.
