How the book came to be:

Carly worked alongside Scottish artist and photographer Gillian Gamble to create the book. They are both alumni of the University of St Andrews and wanted to make something that captured the warm spirit and quirky character of this historic town.

Published by Cartographie Press, a small independent publisher and maker of design-led gifts for those who love illustration, adventures and colour.
