Edinburgh is a mad god's dream.

One Book One Edinburgh 2008 - Jekyll and Hyde

The second One Book – One Edinburgh reading campaign aimed to bring Edinburgh's residents together to read a classic Scottish story, and gave away 10,000 free books.

Jekyll & Hyde paperback cover

We focused on Edinburgh author Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, a dark, gothic tale, heavily influenced by the duality of our city. You think you know the story – but have you actually read it?

The Metro Online has a 10 chapter serialisation with exclusive images from the graphic novel. Catch up here.
