Ayrshire, 1967. It’s avid photographer Danny’s last summer in his home town before he heads off to Glasgow and to college. But before he leaves the ailing fishing community he has a long week in prospect on board his dad’s fishing boat, The Silver Darling.
“Will Morris sculpts a world of wild, glittering seas and inner turmoil from delicate watercolour, expressive lines and sparse, potent words. You can practically smell the sea salt on his drawings. Superstition, luck – it’s all in the mind, isn’t it? The Silver Darlings makes irrational beliefs as tangible as waves, as biting as storm spray in your face. A beautiful book.”
- Nick Abadzis, Eisner-winning author of Laika and Hugo Tate
