I have been the editor of the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland's magazine since 2014. In 2016 I took over its design and typesetting, introducing a new visual style and improving the magazine's accessibility. Each issue has one or two themes which have included women and architecture, climate change and the built environment, and education and storytelling.

Each issue involves working with the AHSS's publications committee to identify potential authors, liaising with writers, editing and proofreading content, sourcing images and securing reproduction licenses, researching events and news stories, and working with volunteers who provide additional research, copy and proofreading. I then design and typeset the magazine and liaise with the printer and distributor ahead of the mailouts. As you can imagine, the magazine comprises a significant proportion of my working year!

The AHSS is very grateful to Abigail Daly of Ruskin Lane
for the enormous improvement she has brought to our house magazine since she took over full editorial and design responsibility. It is now as good a quality of both content and design as can be found in any heritage or charity magazine, and this is very largely due to her. She always gives clear advice to the Editorial Committee and works very well with them. We would recommend her highly to anyone wanting improvement in this kind of work.
