Jura Unbound: Illicit Ink & Graphic Scotland (2013 event)

Graphic Scotland, champions of the graphic novel and Illicit Ink, a literary troupe who by their own admission like to 'play in the dark' took to the stage for the Book Festival's Jura Unbound series of events. Filmed live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival, the show combines unusual stories on the page with illustrators on the stage -- while the writers read, guest cartoonists and graphic novelists draw what they hear. Performers include Stephen Collins, author of the acclaimed The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil and comic artist Emma Vieceli whose work includes Manga Shakespeare and Vampire Academy.
