Internationally acclaimed writer Dame Muriel Spark is to be celebrated in the biggest exhibition ever staged on her life and work.
'The International Style of Muriel Spark' takes visitors on a journey across three continents to the places Spark lived.
It charts the Edinburgh-born writer's early struggles before publication of 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie' propelled her to global success.
And one of the highlights of the exhibtion is the manuscript of the 'Brodie' novel, on loan from the University of Tulsa.
Many exhibits have never been seen previously by the public, and most of the items are from Spark's extraordinary archive, held at the National Library of Scotland.
Opening at the National Library on 8 December, the exhibition is one of the main events in a year-long celebration to mark the centenary of her birth, which falls in February.
