The artwork

This colourful drawing has its origins in mid-century illustration and pop art styles. It’s a gallus way to celebrate the power and spirit o the language.

The Scots Leid

The Scots language, or ‘leid’ in Scots, has a long and colourful history that stretches back well over a thousand years. Part of its colour isn't just the glorious words, but the vivid sayings that bring it to life.
