Sandstone Press to publish puffins book by photographer Morgans

Sandstone Press has acquired world rights to Puffins: Life on the Atlantic Edge directly from photographer and author Kevin Morgans. 

Published in May 2022, Puffins: Life on the Atlantic Edge will showcase the lives of the seabirds, from their unmistakable appearance to their quirky personalities.

Morgans won the Best Portfolio Award at this year’s Bird Photographer of the Year awards, an accolade that celebrates his lifelong passion for photographing the Atlantic puffins. He said: "Over the past few years, my passion for photographing Atlantic puffins has taken me on an adventure that has spanned the length of the British Isles, from the idyllic Pembrokeshire coastline to the rugged cliffs of Shetland. I hope the images in this book, are portrayed not only as a celebration, of both my journey with these charismatic seabirds, as it is an insightful study into their lives."

Sandstone Press m.d. Robert Davidson commented: "Kevin Morgans was already recognised as one of the finest nature photographers in Britain but now, with this award, he moves into the very top ranks. I have seen the early work on his coming book and, believe me, it is stunning. Puffins: Life on the Atlantic Edge is going to cement his reputation at the very top and the wider public is going to love it."
