Imagined Lands stampsheet

More about this item

The illustrated stamp album for postage stamps of the world. Imagined Lands, vol. XIV - Scotland features two stamps with texts by Edwin Morgan and artwork by Linda Taylor.

'A Far Horn' combines images from 'The Coin' and 'The Summons' in Sonnets from Scotland (1984), and was inspired by John Purser's description, in Scotland's Music (1992), of the oldest playable Scottish instrument, the Caprington Horn, discovered intact in an Iron Age grave in Ayrshire. 'One by one' uses a line from 'Wolf', in the 'Beasts of Scotland' sequence, later published in Virtual and Other Realities (Carcanet, 1997).
