On being elected to the Royal Scottish Academy, artists deposit a 'diploma' work: a painting, sculpture, architectural model, photograph or print that is representative of their finest art. This book presents a selection of 61 of these Diploma works, arranged by date, from Thomas Hamilton's Design for the Royal High School, Edinburgh, deposited in 1831, to Arthur Watson's Arkival (2008 -), an ongoing multi-media installation, and with detailed commentary accompanying each piece.
