Festival Art

Creatively interpreting the festival

Each year we plan to commission an artist or illustrator to produce a series of works to interpret the book festival as they see it. Their work will then be used across all our marketing and social media postings to promote the festival programme.

Unfortunately, with Covid making things difficult to plan for this year’s festival, we were unable to commission a festival artist.

This year’s artwork, which has been adapted for the printed programme and website, was created by illustrator Eilidh Muldoon. The image, which depicts Abbotsford, our temporary festival home for 2021, was taken from her book The Colouring Book of Scotland which is available from our online bookshop.
