A Sketchbook of Edinburgh, Hardback Book


In this evocative book Iain and Anne Fraser take the reader, both visitor and resident, on a personal journey through the centre of one of the world's most unforgettable cities.

Working with four talented local artists (Irina Cucu, Cat Outram, Keli Clark and Catherine Stevenson) they reflect the character and cultural history of Edinburgh through 80 pages and 150 beautiful and original illustrations.

Their narrative describes the split personality of Scotland's capital city, from the subdued sophistication of a 'dreich' February day to the flouncy and frivolous fun of the summer festival season.

The dramatic character of Edinburgh and its history are world renowned.

The authors highlight their favourite parts of the city centre and include a series of quirky stories discovered during their research gleaned from some of the many books written about the city.
