The Edinburgh Art Book

The Edinburgh Art Book, the third in the 'City Art Book' series will be launched in its home city in May 2019. The book will show the city through the eyes of 67 contemporary artists it inspires, working in a range of media and form.

We are delighted that the Foreword to the book will be written by Tommy Zyw, Director of The Scottish Gallery

A hard-backed 127 page illustrated book, The Edinburgh Art Book will be created by artist and editor Emma Bennett and published by UIT/Green Books, Cambridge.

Some locals have had a sneeky look at the images for the book.....

‘A great book with some beautiful pictures of our home city’
Craig and Charlie Reid ‘The Proclaimers’

'Edinburgh’s unique character- old and new, architectural and scenic, urban and coastal- is beautifully captured by its artists' Rory Bremner Scottish impressionist and comedian

'Edinburgh is the most stunning city architecturally in the whole of the UK. But then I’m biased. These are the streets of my childhood revealed and adorned by its very own artists in a wonderful variety of colour and style' Iain Glen Actor (Ser Jorah Morment in Game of Thrones)

'If art is the mirror held up to nature by which nature sees itself, this book, this growing series of books, is a beautiful introduction to an expansive universe of artists, known and unknown, and there can be no end of benefit from that.' Robert Cavanagh TV and Film Actor

'What a beautiful book about my favourite city in the World. My home. Wonderful images by contemporary artists. I have the best memories of Edinburgh and this book will take pride of place in my house' Gail Porter TV Presenter

'Although I was born there, I don’t know Edinburgh very well, but when I look at these wonderful images, I long to jump on train and rediscover this beautiful city' Lindsay Duncan, TV and Film Actress
