Oor ain culture
Culture is one of the main things that define a country. It makes one place on a map more than simply in a different location to another place on a map. Scotland is no exception to this. From our tartans and traditions, to our writing, music, languages and so much more, the culture that has come to define Scotland has become known around the world.
Cringe no more
In the centuries since the birth of the union in 1707, Scots have been gradually all been taught to dislike, dismiss, or even flat out deny our culture. Known as the Scottish Cringe, this in-built censor manifests in all sorts of ways, often near words like 'twee' and 'parochial'. Bringing a focus and sense of worth to Scottish culture is one of the main aims of Indy Prints.
About this piece
'A red, red rose' is one of Rabbie Burns' most famous poems, that he wrote in 1794. Written during the Scottish Enlightenment, it is possible that newly-developed ideas about the age of our planet helped inform this deeply romantic work.
This typographic design is inspired by the rough quality and imperfections of hand-made linocut prints. Give this beautiful Scottish message to the special someone in your life, or simply celebrate Scotland's Bard.
