'North-east the Firth, a braceletmerging with mist; south-westthe Pentlands, sharply defined.Directly opposite, the Castle. A sudden gust makes me losemy footing. Gulls slip past,eyeing us disdainfully.' - from From Arthur's Seat The history and character of Edinburgh infuse every piece in Stewart Conn's new collection. Stewart's poems, paired with John Knight's beautifully detailed illustrations evoke the spirit of the city and its unique aspects. Knight's pieces are not simply illustrative. The poems and illustrations complement and enhance each other, showing us how the essence of the city infuses every stone.
