Illustrating Scottish Poets

Thursday 12 April @ 8:00 am - 17 June @ 5:00 pm

Cost: Free

The National Library of Scotland has installed a new display offering visitors the chance to see a selection of some delightfully illustrated poetry books from their rare books collections.

‘Illustrating Scottish poems’ focuses on works by Allan Ramsay, James Thomson, Robert Burns, Robert Fergusson, and the legendary bard Ossian.

The display uses illustrations of their poems to demonstrate the evolution of 18th-century Scottish book illustration and its establishment as a patriotic visual culture.
