Pockets of Pretty
By Shawna Law
This gorgeous book takes the reader on a stroll through Edinburgh’s many distinct ‘villages’. From the Georgian grandeur of the New Town to the fishmarket squares of historic Leith . . . With a local as your guide, these walks spotlight wonderful photo opportunities – ranging from iconic landmarks to hidden treasures – and include fabulous places to enjoy a coffee, browse a bookstore or visit a boutique florist.
For each ‘village’ Shawna talks to artists, business owners and characters, who give their insight on the area, sharing their favourite spots to unwind, relax or have fun.
Edinburgh’s unique mix of history, atmosphere, landscape and architecture delights millions of visitors a year. Shawna’s love for her adopted city and passion for photography combine to offer a stunning view of how Edinburgh can be explored afresh, whether on foot or planning your trip from afar.
A love letter to Edinburgh, in words and photos. Seen through the distinctive lens of leading instagrammer Shawna Law, Pockets of Pretty showcases the majestic and secluded gems that make the city special.
