The Eriskay Connection

About us

Eriskay is a remote Scottish island. To get there many steps are necessary travelling by plane, train, bus and ferry. These steps connect the small island to the large world and vice versa. And this is precisely the objective of The Eriskay Connection.

The Eriskay Connection is a Dutch studio for book design and an independent publisher of art books at the intersection of photography, research, social issues and science. We are particularly interested in projects that map relevant matters, provide insight into the world we live in, tell a story, make a statement, expose a history or give directions to our view on the future.

Since 2011 the love for designing books inspires us in creating a publishing path that takes us into the unknown. On our way we find travel companions who accompany us in contemporary publishing structures. By sharing experiences we aim to find new companions, alternative routes and discover unexpected destinations.
