Our fantastic front page illustration was created by SNACK…IN designer Fionnlagh Ballantine. It was created to show our support for our country’s front-line workers, as well as reflecting the sense of community and creativity that has been a welcome boost to us all in these difficult times.
It features hand drawn images of a few of the most prominent artists in the Scottish music scene: James Graham of The Twilight Sad, BBC Radio Scotland and Check Masses’ (Uncle) Vic Galloway, and the wonderful Carla J. Easton.
We’ve had such a great response to the cover that we’ve decided to make a Limited Edition print of the original illustration available to buy.
A special thank you to James Graham of The Twilight Sad who has kindly allowed us to feature his words on the illustration.
‘It Won/t Be Like This All The Time’
James has very kindly agreed to sign 25 copies of the print for us. The first 25 customers will receive one of these even more limited edition versions.
Update: The signed posters are now sold out but we still have some non signed Limited Edition prints available in our shop.
