Description

Edinburgh Souvenirs captures the artist’s memories of her time living in Edinburgh, they are not real objects, they only exist in Hannah Botma’s imagination.

On the left is a keychain featuring North Bridge which was built in the 18th centuary.  It fameously connects Edinburgh’s Old Town to the New Town and boasts stunning views out over the city.

In the centre, there is The Royal Observatory on Blackford Hill, inside a snow globe.  Part of Edinburgh’s charms is created by hills which surround the city centre.  Blackford Hill is to the South of the city centre and is home to many ducks, swans and other wildlife.  Perched on top of hill is a Victorian building containing an uptodate observtory which is open to the public.  This popular spot connects Edinburgh to the skies above.

On the left, is a bottle opener celebrating the Leith Theatre.  Closed and left to ruin for decades, this beautiful art decco building is having life breathed into it by a new generation of artists and creatives.  During her time living in Edinburgh the artist worked for a well loved local brewery, which will have also influenced her fondness for the city.20

This Edinburgh Souvenirs print was created byHannah Botma for the “Crag & Tale” exhibition which encouraged illustrators to look at Edinburgh from a different perspective.  Curated by Nicky Brooks here at the Red Door Gallery you can read more about this exhibition here.
