Established in 2007, Ailsapress is a small independent publisher based on the Isle of Islay. Our aim is to produce art-led books for the gift and children’s market that will reflect indigenous island life and offer a memento to visitors who come to the island.
The Isle of Islay lies off the west coast of Scotland and is part of the group of islands known as the Inner Hebrides. Its unspoiled natural beauty attracts a wide variety of visitors to its shores, bird enthusiasts, whisky connoisseurs, walkers, divers and archaeologists to name but a few. Above all, it is a place where families love to romp and roam. Islay also plays host to 14 different festivals throughout the year, including a Whisky festival, three Music Festivals (Jazz, Folk & Chamber Music) and a Book Festival.
