The Art of Reading: Murals for Book Week Scotland

Still of Buckhaven mural
For Book Week Scotland 2013 we wanted to celebrate reading, explore what writing and literature mean to Scotland and shout about the brilliant and essential place of libraries in communities across the country.

To do this we commissioned artists to create five new artworks which were unveiled on a different library across the country over the course of the week. Watch the video to see how it happened! 

More about the artists:
David Galletly
Eleanor Stewart
Gabriella Marcella DiTano
Rogue One

We worked with Pidgin Perfect, an award-winning, multi-disciplinary creative studio to deliver this programme of new artworks.
