here), and one in the National Library Of Scotland in Edinburgh.
Located on George IV Bridge in Edinburgh's Old Town near the Castle, the National Library Of Scotland is one of the six legal deposit libraries of the British Isles (along with the British Library in London, the Bodleian Library in Oxford, Cambridge University Library, Trinity College Library in Dublin and the National Library of Wales).
The NLS previous has put on the impressive Local Heroes: The Art Of The Graphic Novel exhibition which was featured on downthetubes here, and we also interviewed the curator of the exhibition, John Birch, on the main downthetubes.net site.
Issue 22 of the library's free magazine, Discover NLS, is also of interest as it includes a two page Dandy strip by long time DC Thomson artist Jim Glen especially created for the magazine featuring Desperate Dan and a whole host of Dandy characters delivering the items for display from the Dandy office to the NLS. Needless to say things do not go smoothly when Hungry Horace and Greedy Pigg discover the NLS's recently opened cafe. Discover NLS issue 22 is available to read on-line here.
