Black & White signs Edinburgh book by Instagram star Shawna Law

Black & White Publishing has landed a guide to Edinburgh by blogger and Instagram star Shawna Law.

Publishing director Alison McBride acquired world rights direct from the author for Pockets of Pretty: An Instagrammer’s Edinburgh, which will be published on 10th October.

Originally from Malaysia, Law moved to Fife as a teenager before heading to the Scottish capital as a student. Law has amassed 40,000 followers for her pictures of the Scottish city, shared on her Exploring Edinburgh Instagram account.

The publisher explained: “Pockets of Pretty will be an insider’s guide to Edinburgh’s diverse neighbourhoods and many distinct ‘villages’, from the tranquil Dean Village to the vibrant Shore, from the Georgian grandeur of the New Town to the fishmarket squares of historic Leith.

“With wonderful photos of iconic landmarks and hidden treasures, including fabulous places to enjoy a coffee, browse a bookstore or visit a boutique florist, Shawna will also talk to artists, business owners and characters in each ‘village’ to give their insight on the area, sharing their favourite spots to unwind, relax or have fun.”

Law said: “I’m still discovering parts I didn’t know and hearing stories from the city’s colourful past. I agree with fellow Fifer Ian Rankin that Edinburgh is more a way of life than a city. I’ll never tire of it!”
