Cymru o hud/Eternal Wales
Gwynfor Evans and Marian Delyth

If you have any interest in Wales at all, then Cymru o Hud is an essential addition to your bookshelf. It is result of a 10 year collaboration between photographer Marian Delyth and politician/author Gwynfor Evans, and it shows - only Delyth’s best photos are here, and they are stunning. As you turn each page, the breathtaking beauty of Wales springs from the page to enrapture and enthral.

Each photo is accompanied by a narrative from Gwynfor Evans that only adds to the fascination, revealing snippets of history

and myth that draw you further into the image. Evans explores the relationship between history and landscape in a way which is immediately accessible and enjoyable, yet not superficial. Rather, it is an appetite whetter, an aperitif that can only serve to prompt deeper exploration of Welsh history.

Cymru o Hud is also published in English, as Eternal Wales, so if you are a learner be careful in choosing your version. Cymru o Hud is a challenge to translate even for relatively experienced learners and, if you’re not fluent, you might get more enjoyment from Eternal Wales.

But if you really want to set your brain afire, then this is the book to do it with. The shortness of each passage does mean that you can take the book in small chunks without losing your way, and each page completed means a new place to learn about, a new photo to inspire you, and a new glimpse of history to keep your nose in the dictionary.

Y Lolfa strove to create a masterpiece with Cymru o Hud, and they succeeded. Here is a book with all the gloss, all the professionalism and perfection of a big-budget publication, yet with the intimacy and delicate touch of a small press publication. Thus Cymru o Hud leads the way, it proves that not only is Wales both photogenic and fascinating, but also that top-notch books are not just the preserve of the London publishers.
