A unique collection of letters setting out the hopes and dreams for Scotland's future is set for publication.
From detailed missives to compelling scribbles, hundreds of letters have been submitted from across the country as part of the Dearest Scotland project.
Since March 2014, the apolitical organisation funded by Snook has received in excess of 400 entries from people as young as five and as old as 77 all setting out their visions for a future Scotland.
The hope was to produce written evidence of how Scots view themselves in 2014/15 and what direction they would like to see the country take in the decades to come, which could then be shared with students, think tanks and government.
After smashing a crowdfunding target, Dearest Scotland is now preparing to launch its first book on Thursday.
In celebration of Letters Written to the Future of a Nation, Dearest Scotland will also host a week-long exhibition at Holyrood.
Curated by co-founder Cat Cochrane from Glasgow, the exhibition will feature letters and images collected over the past 18 months.
"The exhibit gives the opportunity for the project to deliver letters written to the future of Scotland to the annals of power," said Cat.
"We've had letters from people aged seven, 57 or even 77 talking all about different things - but with one common ground.
"They are all talking about the people and not the politicians."
Themes in the letters vary from education to environment and play parks to haggis, penned in an imaginative range of styles.
One bright young spark delivered her sentiments about Scotland in the form of a dinner invitation, detailing that Scotland's 'dessert' was "hearts of gold nestled in welcoming glens."
Here's what Hannah, age 10 - 14 from Edinburgh wrote:
Cat said: "The most common things coming from people of all ages are visions for social justice and a greener country.
"You get letters from students who are really concerned about further education, to keep it free and have choices out with that.
"We've had a lot letters from Italian and Canadian people that are almost like warnings about Scotland's diet.
"It's so interesting to hear about people's journeys - people who have been out of Scotland for a while, but come back because they miss it too much."
The Dearest Scotland book launch will take place at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh on October 8 from 6.30pm.
