These are prints by Jane Hyslop. Actually they come in three parts, the third being the Nor Loch, which I took south a couple of years ago. I like the mixture of blueprint and map and landscape in them all, especially the green hills around the New Town’s straight lines. They remind me of this:
On the forenoon of the second day, coming to the top of a hill, I saw all the country fall away before me down to the sea; and in the midst of this descent, on a long ridge, the city of Edinburgh smoking like a kiln. There was a flag upon the castle, and ships moving or lying anchored in the firth; both of which, for as far away as they were, I could distinguish clearly; and both brought my country heart into my mouth.
