Bringing Literature to the Streets

Our mission is to bring books, words and ideas to the streets of Edinburgh. We want everyone in the city – residents, workers and visitors – to see literature around them wherever they go. If we can inscribe it, project it, build it or tell it, we’ll do it! Keep your eyes open around Edinburgh and see if you can see the stories in the stones and everywhere else.
