Product Description


From the summer glints off its domes and high towers, the flags fluttering on the Castle Esplanade and the blaze of flowers in Princes Street Gardens down to the shaded canyons of the Cowgate, Edinburgh is a city of dazzling contrasts. With patience and an unerring eye for the essential, Liz Hanson has photographed much of that intensity. These elegant and truthful pictures record the transit of all the seasons all over the great city. 

The passage of time has been traced by Alistair Moffat in a short history of Edinburgh; the perfect accompaniment to the photographs. From Celtic warriors on the Castle Rock to the misfiring genius of the New Town and the arrival of the Scottish Parliament, it is a quirky, unlikely and sweeping story of the capital city of Scotland.
