Cover: William Aikman, Allan Ramsay. Courtesy Scottish National Portrait Gallery. The website of the National Galleries of Scotland includes the following caption beside this portrait:

Allan Ramsay began his career in Edinburgh as a wigmaker; he went on to become a bookseller, successful poet and an important member of Edinburgh’s literary and artistic circles. He was a close friend of the artist, William Aikman, and this portrait was owned by another friend, Sir John Clerk of Penicuik. Clerk wrote on the back of the canvas, imitating Ramsay’s verse: “Here painted on this canvas clout by Aikman’s hand is Ramsay’s snout.”

Forthcoming

Paideuma 36.1-2 (2007-2009)

Beginning with volume 36, Paideuma will be switching to a biannual format (the journal has been a de facto biannual since volume 14), and for the foreseeable future the two issues will be printed together as a single annual. Our primary aim is to streamline the publication process, in order to get the journal back onto a regular publication schedule. We believe that this format is best suited to that goal. Note that the date range assigned to volume 36 brings the current issue in line with the current calendar year. Volume 37 will cover the year 2010.
