Following a residency on the Isle of Erraid, a tidal island off the south-west coast of Mull, artists’ collective 6°WEST created a set of unique postage stamps in response to the life and works of Robert Louis Stevenson and his connection to the island.
The exhibition, installed in the historic Scottish Arts Club, displays stamped envelopes featuring a quote from the writer’s work, along with supporting prints emphasising Stevenson’s connection with both Erraid and Edinburgh.
Letters using these stamps have been sent across the world by 6°WEST, reaching out to people and places with a particular significance in Stevenson’s life to amplify the artists’ dialogue with the writer.
6°WEST is Anne Devine, David Faithfull, Alicia Hendrick and Mhairi Killin.
