For a that

Tonight we're kicking off a new wave of Scottish designs, that will be appearing at Indy Prints in intervals over the next few months. We begin with the bard!

Our first new print features the last verse of Rabbie Burns' timeless poem 'A Man's A Man For A That', rendered using a heavy art deco font. It is overlaid in four sections on a modern interpretation of the famous portrait of the bard.

Then let us pray that come it may,
(As come it will for a that,)
That Sense and Worth, o'er a the earth,
Shall bear the gree, an a that.

For those who prefer people to poems, you can skip the text completely and go for the straightforward portrait. The original was painted in 1787 by Alexander Nasymth, who is said to have befriended the poet while he was on a visit to Edinburgh.
