Artwork by Edinburgh students inspired by maps of Antarctica and other polar material has gone on display at the National Library.
Fifteen students from Edinburgh College of Art recently visited the Library to see a selection of maps and to meet Paula Williams, Curator of Maps, Mountaineering and Polar Collections.
Inspired by the maps and the story of Ernest Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-1917, each student was given the brief to create an illustrated map and a related object.
The resulting artwork is on display in the main hall of the Library's George IV Bridge Building from 9-19 February.
This is the second year that the Library's learning team has worked with the college to develop a specific project for students.
