Orkney is awash with talented artists and creatives – but few go on to become household names.
Some 15 years after its first appearance in The Orcadian, Alex Leonard’s Giddy Limit is still the first thing many of our readers look for in their weekly newspaper.
His work is now instantly recognisable, far even beyond the much-loved characters he gave us all those years ago.
Of course, as we all know, there is never a dull moment in Orkney for Alex and the Giddy crew to reflect on – and the rest is history!
Even in the midst of the most unprecedented crisis of our times, Alex has captured each moment, with dignified humour.
Much as this book will bring a smile to your day and make you laugh out loud, it records another five years of local history (well closer to six!). Of course, this includes the pandemic which brought the world to a standstill, and how it was perceived and experienced in Orkney.
Sandy, Liz, Cheemo, Davo and Ivy have social distanced, mastered online communications (in a fashion), and clapped for carers and key workers, along with the nation.
As Alex’s strip lands in the newsroom on deadline day, a commonly uttered phrase is simply: “Nailed it.” Because he does. Every time.
We proudly present The Giddy Limit 15 Year Anniversary Book . Sit back with a cuppa, and delight in the adventures of Orkney’s favourite family.
They are after all, your adventures too . . .
