Exhibition on Scottish publishing at Edinburgh Napier

An exhi­bi­tion show­ing how Scot­tish mag­a­zine pub­lish­ing has devel­oped since the ear­ly 1900s is now open at Edin­burgh Napi­er Uni­ver­si­ty’s Mer­chis­ton Cam­pus. It looks at the ori­gins of the indus­try back to the 1700s but the main focus is mag­a­zine pub­lish­ing in Scot­land in the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry, and shows the his­to­ry of the mag­a­zines and nos­tal­gic, con­tex­tu­al descrip­tions of each peri­od. The exhi­bi­tion is an appre­ci­a­tion of the diverse impact Scot­tish pub­li­ca­tions have made on read­ers around the world, and the fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries behind them. Young mag­a­zine read­ers, pub­lish­ers and design­ers will find a wealth of knowl­edge on Scot­land’s mag­a­zine pub­lish­ing her­itage with­in the exhibition.

100 Years of Scot­tish Mag­a­zine Pub­lish­ing is at Mer­chis­ton from 24 June until 19 July 2013. There is also an online ver­sion of the exhibition.
