An Art Lover’s Guide to Glasgow

For the first time in several years, last summer I spent the majority of my time at home in Glasgow. I took the opportunity to explore my city more, collaborating with local hotels and restaurants over the season and growing my portfolio of collaborations in the process. As well as this, I worked towards creating an eBook on Glasgow for my subscribers to purchase. The result was ‘An Art Lover’s Guide to Glasgow’ which is available on all Amazon stores now for just £2.99.

In this short book I’ve combined my love for art with that for my native Glasgow. By further expanding my knowledge of Glasgow as local, using my experience in the art history field and having greatly considered what people visiting the city would enjoy visiting, I’ve collated tens architectural, structural and artistic sights and added analysis, photographs and details of how to access them.

Spanning from the East End, through the city centre and to the West End, I’ve tried to include locations that are not only well advertised and visited, but those further off the beaten track. By featuring chapters on the architecture, street art and bridges present on the city streets as well as its many museums and religious buildings, I’ve tried to be all encompassing of each artistic aspect Glasgow has to offer.

If you’d like to support a small blog I would really appreciate any purchases of the book, and please do let me know what you think of it. I am considering turning the book into a series of eBooks on Glasgow, so let me know what other categories you would like to see.

  1. Congratulations! I’m sure it’ll be a popular tome and include plenty of info. on Rennie Mackintosh. You might consider approaching the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society to promote it via their website to their members.

    1. Thank you Sheree! Indeed. Thanks for that info, I’ll get in tough with them. Also trying to get some promotion via Glasgow Life, the organisation that are in charge of the public museums and galleries.

  2. You dropped by my site the other week (thanks for that!), so I followed you back here! I’m intrigued by your Amazon ebook and wonder how it’s been going? I’m just about to publish my first – my travel journeys and experiences as a Rough Guide writer – but it’s difficult to know how it will fare. All in the promotion I guess, but if you have any tips, I’d be glad to hear them!

    1. Hi Jules! It’s done pretty well and sold in four continents. I really just done it as a passion project and to put Glasgow on the map for art lovers so haven’t pushed sales really, sorry I can’t be of much help. Good luck with your book!
