People who have saved this event:


From her tall precipice and terraced gardens she looks far and wide …
Robert Louis Stevenson, Picturesque Notes, 1878


Precipitous City encapsulates how Stevenson and the members of bound : unbound

view the city of Edinburgh. The group, based in and around the city, make artist

books and wall works that reflect the diverse practices of each artist – printmaking,

painting, lettering, installation and textiles. The works on show reflect interests

ranging from Edinburgh’s fine architecture and examples of lettering, to her

association with the medical world, plants and herbal medicines, and a pervading

spirit of place. As a group the artists have created a set of five prints, available as a

set or individually, that draw together these various interests.
