I Love St Andrews

About the book:

I Love St Andrews is a bestselling, illustrated picture book that celebrates all the wonderful things about the town of St Andrews. The book will take you through the four seasons and centuries of history, exploring the colorful traditions and picturesque landscapes that make our Auld Grey Toon unique.


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.

News: As of June 2019, I Love St Andrews has nearly sold out its second print run. There may be a few remaining copies available in local stores throughout St Andrews including Waterstones, Topping & Company and J&G Innes, but the book is no longer available to order online. Thank you to the thousands of readers who have bought the book and shared it with their friends and loved ones. Please stay tuned for announcements regarding possible future print runs!
