Penguin: Scotland's Books

Image commissioned by Penguin Press for the cover of a book called “Scotland's Books” by Andrew Crawford, a history of Scottish Literature. It features a casual, utterly impossible gathering of seven Scottish writers past and present: Louise Welsh, Ali Smith, R L Stevenson, J M Barrie, Robert Burns, Irvine Welsh and Sir Walter Scott.
