Words on the Street

This week sees a cel­e­bra­tion of Edinburgh’s long-term love affair with books and lit­er­a­ture, with a vis­it from film­mak­er Ter­ry Gilliam who will unveil a 10-metre long illu­mi­nat­ed quo­ta­tion inspired by Miguel de Cer­vantes’ Don Quixote on Jef­frey Street to high­light his love for this clas­sic book. The illu­mi­nat­ed art instal­la­tion will be vis­i­ble for 28 days and is part of a big­ger project, led by Edin­burgh City of Lit­er­a­ture, to high­light the city’s books, words and ideas through­out 2016 and 2017.
