The Black Bitch Newsletter Photography

Cover and feature page photography for Ellies Cellar, a new family run wine, beer and spirits shop on the High Street. 

The 'Black Bitch' is a local newsletter published in Linlithgow. The name relates to an old story that the bitch was a greyhound whose master was sentenced to starve to death on an island in Linlithgow loch. She would swim to him every day with food but when this was discovered she was chained to a tree on a different island to suffer the same fate as her master. The townspeople took the animal's loyalty and bravery as symbolic of their own and the town's coat of arms features a black dog against an oak tree.
