Design details: A labour of love....

Stories of Rob Roy, The Lady in the Lake and Ivanhoe, which Stephen's dad would often act out very dramatically. He only read Rob Roy as a teenager but loved the television adaptations - always in black and white! So, when the opportunity to join the celebration of Sir Walter Scott’s life and works came about he was delighted.

"A couple of years ago, I was able to visit Scott’s home, Abbotsford. Being a textual artist, I’m fascinated by lettering and all of my early designs included some specific lettering reference to Scott. The route chosen in the end was a combination of distinctive Gothic lettering from the chapel at Abbotsford alongside some lettering used by Scott in the magnificent entrance to his home. As for the portrait, I was inspired by the wonderful sculpture of Scott that sits within his monument on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.”
