The Making of George Wyllie has been co-written by his elder daughter, Louise Wyllie, and arts journalist Jan Patience.

A fascinating insight into the great, quixotic life of George Wylie’ Alan Cumming The Making of George Wyllie has been co-written by his elder daughter, Louise Wyllie, and arts journalist Jan Patience. Containing never-before-seen images and fresh insight into his influences and early life, this book seeks to answer questions about the forces which shaped Wyllie’s unique worldview. Join Louise and Jan as they take us on a voyage beginning with George’s Glasgow childhood – a period ‘disadvantaged by happiness’, through serving in the Pacific with the Royal Navy during WWII, his time as an Excisemen and finally his relatively late entry into the art world where he would create memorable public art works such as the life-sized Straw Locomotive, which hung from the Finnieston Crane.
