Alasdair Gray Collection

As a Scottish bookshop, we'd be remiss not to have some way to celebrate the ridiculously beautifully bound works of Alasdair Gray. And so we have been collecting, for just that purpose.

Almost all of the hardback editions of Gray's work are objects of beauty, designed by a writer and artist who took the printed object of a book seriously. Beneath the dust jackets are often elegantly gilt boards, laid with Gray's own illustrations. Many of the works in our collection are first editions, and/or signed.
