£15.00

The Edinburgh Art Book showcases one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Inspired by Edinburgh's unique architecture, over 50 artists have produced a unique collection of contemporary images illustrating all aspects of the city and surrounding area.

The city is shown in a new light through a range of media, from screen print and computer aided design to hand-cut collage.

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, recognised as the capital of Scotland since at least the 15th century,  The city's Palace of Holyroodhouse is the official residence of the British monarchy in Scotland. The city has long been a centre of education, particularly in the fields of medicine, Scottish law, literature, philosophy, the sciences, and engineering.

The city is affectionately nicknamed Auld Reekie, Scots for Old Smoky, for the views from the country of the smoke-covered Old Town. A remark on a poem in an 1800 collection of the poems of Allan Ramsay said, "Auld Reeky. A name the country people give Edinburgh from the cloud of smoke or reek that is always impending over it."

About the author: Emma is a collage artist, creating vibrant intricate hand-cut collage pictures using minute details. Her fascination with design and recycling leads to beautiful collages, as in the cover of this lovely book.
