The Wee Book of Edinburgh
Since moving to Edinburgh a year and a half ago, I've built up a collection of photographs of this singularly photogenic city we now call our home. Recently, I was researching famous quotes about Edinburgh and I had the idea of coupling my favourite images with my favourite quotations. The idea turned into the Wee Book of Edinburgh.
The e-book consists of 16 digital artworks derived from my photographs and 16 great quotes about Edinburgh by famous people.
I wanted to do something a bit different, so the artworks feature bright, bold colour schemes. I like to think of the collection of images as Edinburgh: with a colourful twist.
Putting the book together was fun, as was finding quotes about Edinburgh that weren't complimentary. (usually regarding how badly the city used to smell in the 19th century!). It used to be handsome but smelly. Now it's just handsome.
As a thank-you, we give a free copy of this book to everyone who joins our mailing list, so if you’d like a copy then simply fill in the form below.
Also, if you prefer physical books and printed artworks then you're in luck. In our online shop, we have a physical version of the Wee Book of Edinburgh.
This version doesn't have quotations but it features even more of my digital artworks (23). It’s a lovely photobook that is hardbound. Its wee size (13cm x 10cm) makes it a great memento for yourself or gift for someone.
