I see dead people

Earlier this year, Edinburgh World Heritage Trust commissioned me to illustrate some more graveyard maps. This time round is was for the five graveyards situated in the World Heritage Site; Calton Old, Calton New, Canongate, Greyfriars and St Cuthberts.

‘Twas fun, again. My favourite bits were probably drawing a bunch of birdies for St Cuthbert’s…

Also, as we’d already done Canongate last year, this time round we made a more family-friendly version for this one, with games ‘n’ everything!

Fancy giving it a go? You can download all of them as .pdfs from HERE, and print versions are also available from each of the kirks and EWHT.

This is a rock dove. William McGillivray (buried in New Calton) trained one to follow him to school when he was a kid.
