OUTSIDER SHOP

Firstly, thank you to everyone who has asked where they can get hold of copies of the hand-stitched pamphlets. These are labours of love that I enjoy making and sharing with you and I hope you find as much joy in reading them as I have in creating them. I want to create beautiful hand-stitched pamphlets that you’ll love to hold, that will feel inviting to the touch, however it’s been hard to get them sorted while on the road! I’ve finally got the new pamphlet with the printers as well as eeking out time to stitch the final copies.
These wouldn’t exist in this beautiful form without the creative design and artistic vision of Andy Garside – he’s visualised all of my work from day one and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

FOR SOME UNFATHOMABLE REASON THESE PAYPAL BUTTONS ONLY WORK FROM A LAPTOP NOT A PHONE. I am not very tech-minded but am trying to sort it out. Alternatively, if you have a PayPal account you can find me at: words@sophiemckeand.com and send payment that way (with a note saying which books you’d like).

Please also consider supporting my work through a Patreon subscription where you can access exclusive travel writing, new poetry, recipes inspired by this life on the road, and photo travel diaries by my partner Andy Garside. This allows me to write directly for the people who most value the work and I’m hugely grateful to everyone coming along on this journey!
