This is the fourth book that I have designed for the Edinburgh Art Festival, it accompanied The Making of the Future: Now, the Festival’s 2017 commissions programme.

The Making of the Future: Now ‘invites artists to reflect on two important anniversaries for our city – the foundation of the first Edinburgh Festival in 1947, and the publication in 1917 of Patrick Geddes’ The Making of the Future: A Manifesto and a Project. Separated by a generation, both were born directly out of the experience of global conflict, and a strong belief that artists could play a critical role in helping societies to imagine new and better ways of living. Presenting new projects by Scottish and international artists at sites in around Edinburgh’s Old Town, The Making of the Future: Now pays homage to the physical and intellectual legacy of Geddes and the festival in our city, and makes a claim for the continued relevance of their ideas today.’

Artists include: Bobby Niven, ZoĆ« Walker and Neil Bromwich, Toby Paterson, and Shannon Te Ao with ‘Garden Residencies’ from Neil Bickerton, Alison Scott, Daisy Lafarge, and Deirdre Nelson. The book includes Patrick Geddes' essay, The Making of the Future: A Manifesto and a Project as an eight page section at the back of the book, printed on a different paper stock from the main body of the book.

A set of posters that I designed for Daughters of Penelope, Dovecot Gallery's Edinburgh Art Festival 2017 exhibition. Daughters of Penelope 'interweaves the work of artists who are investigating women’s stories and textile histories with the unique story of women’s work at Dovecot, providing a new structure within which both can be held, re-examined and strengthened.'
