Original woodcut print books by Edinburgh students — inspired by the Library's 'Book beautiful' display — are on show at the National Library of Scotland.
Edinburgh College of Art's first-year illustration students visited the Library to see a selection of treasures, and met with James Mitchell, Curator of Rare Books and Music.
Inspired by the Library's display, the students produced their own printed books, illustrating Geoffrey Chaucer's 'The Canterbury Tales'. Using woodcut relief printing, each piece was folded to produce a simple book form, with a single sheet of paper.
The resulting artwork is on display in the main hall of the Library's George IV Building from 11-23 February.
This is the third collaboration between the Library's Learning Team and Edinburgh College of Art.
