Collective is pleased to present three new woodblock print editions by Ruth Ewan. The prints have been informed and developed from the research undertaken for Memorialmania, an audio guide for Calton Hill produced in collaboration with Astrid Johnston.
The Political Martyrs’ Monument, the large obelisk set in the Old Calton Cemetery, which can be viewed from the top of Calton Hill is a central focus in Memorialmania. The monument commemorates five political reformists from the late 18th century who were imprisoned for campaigning for parliamentary reform under the influence of the ideals of the French Revolution. The five were found guilty of sedition and transported to Australia in 1794 and 1795.
Three prints are available to buy:
May the People £150
Salisbury Crags £150
Each print is produced as an edition of 20 by Robert Smail's Printing Works, Innerleithen. Please email us for further details.
