Every time I visit Edinburgh I make a beeline for Analogue Books on West Bow, just at the Grassmarket. A bookshop and exhibition space, Analogue is home to a really good selection of art and design books and magazines, one of which I couldn't leave without (pictured below: the reason for its purchase will be revealed soon...). I'm also told the exhibition space in the back will host work by the dreamy Anthony Burrill in the near future.
While in town I bought some more reading material at the bookshop in the Fruitmarket Gallery on Market Street. Another good art and design bookshop, and a great place for a coffee.
