Celebrating Robert Burns, the ploughman poet, Scottish legend and source of inspiration for countless other artists and creatives over the last 250 years.
Rabbie was a colourful and insightful character and the topics he addressed 250 years ago are every bit as relevant now. In our GK Robert Burns Collection, we set out to explain the meaning and sentiment behind 4 of his better-known works using the power of illustration.
Our bold, blue Tam O Shanter design takes explains one of the most famous lines from what is arguably his most famous poem, warning of (or possibly celebrating) the bolstering effects of Scotch whisky over ale. Never a truer word was written!
Address To A Haggis expresses Rabbie’s love for the mighty, spicy, chieftan o the puddin’ race; the recital of which is an essential part of any Burns Supper worth it’s salt.
Auld Lang Syne is a tribute to the power of enduring friendship; the ties that bind us together for old time’s sake.
A Man’s A Man For A’ That is Burns’ passionate plea for equality, fraternity and compassion for all mankind.
