But here's the scoop.....
Of course I knew that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was from the UK, but not that he was Scottish or from Edinburgh. While doing some last-minute packing, I tossed a small vintage book into my bag because I wanted to do a bit of travel journaling in an altered book format during the trip. The book was one of about 7 old books that I bought at a vintage store on a recent trip to Rosendal with the plan of creating altered books by collaging and journaling in them.
Upon landing in Edinburgh, our tour guide in the bus gave a short introduction to the city and mentioned the long list of writers, of which Conan Doyle was one. Late that night when I opened my book to start journaling I was mesmerized to see that the book was written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, published in 1932 and printed in Aberdeen, Scotland. This book came home!
Here are a few altered pages from the book as travel journal. These are still works in progress, so watch this space.
