Did you know Glasgow has a rich legal heritage? Up until recently, neither did we! But all that's about to change. Illustration, etc. has been commissioned to create a Heritage Trail Map of Glasgow highlighting all the lawlords and lawladies immortalised as stone busts around the city that have shaped Scotland's legal history. Rosemary has been beavering away on this illustrated A3 document to capture all 28 (14 lords and 14 ladies) of these bewigged famous faces. As you can imagine, it has been quite a task to do each individual lawyer justice (geddit?), but it's also been fascinating finding out about the people that helped put Glasgow on the map as a law-making force for the world!
