About The Event

The Edinburgh Bookshop is delighted to be hosting the launch for Allan Wright and Gerda Stevenson's beautiful new book, Edinburgh.

Scottish landscape photographer Allan Wright and Scottish writer, Gerda Stevenson subtly engage with Scotland’s capital in this beautiful new collection of 87 photographs and 22 new poems, showcasing Edinburgh in all her guises. This compelling book will resonate with residents from all over the city as well as with the millions of visitors who throng the streets, cafes and bars on a daily basis.

“A stunning tribute to that magnificent old hypocrite, the city of Edinburgh. The combination of Allan Wright’s gorgeous photography and Gerda Stevenson’s introduction and searing poetry hints that the time may be near when Scotland’s capital of easy virtue will become an honest and independent woman again.”   Richard Holloway.

“Fabulous, intimate portrait of Edinburgh in this new book with poems by Gerda Stevenson of ‘Quine’s’ fame, with matching images by photographer Allan Wright. This is not the tourist’s view nor an uncritical, gushing tribute. Perceptive, spirited and loving.” Lesley Riddoch.
