Alasdair Gray, the beloved author and artist, has died

Canongate is deeply saddened to announce the death of Alasdair Gray, aged 85. He passed away peacefully earlier today at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in his native Glasgow, in the presence of family.

A renowned polymath, Alasdair Gray was beloved equally for his writing and art. His debut, Lanark, which Canongate published in 1981, is widely regarded as being one of the masterpieces of twentieth century fiction. It was followed by more than thirty further books, all of which he designed and illustrated, ranging from novels, short story collections, plays, volumes of poetry, works of non-fiction and translations - most recently, his interpretation of Dante's Divine Trilogy. His public murals are visible across Glasgow, with further examples of his work on display in galleries from the V&A to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Fellow author and friend Ian Rankin told BBC Scotland that Mr Gray was responsible for making everyday Scottish life interesting on an international level.

He said: "He could take something very personal to him - his background growing up in Glasgow for example - and make it that people around the world wanted to read it.

Wer über sich selbst lacht, lacht am besten: Der grosse schottische Autor Alasdair Gray ist tot

Alasdair Gray ging gegen die 50, als er sein erstes Buch veröffentlichte - aber "Lanark" pflügte Schottlands Literaturlandschaft gründlich um. Der grossherzige und vielseitig begabte Schriftsteller ist 85jährig in Glasgow verstorben.

Schottlands Regierungschefin Nicola Sturgeon von der Schottischen Nationalpartei SNP würdigte Gray als "literarischen Giganten" und "echten Universalgelehrten". Er sei "eines der intellektuell hellsten und kreativsten Lichter" gewesen, die Schottland in modernen Zeiten gekannt habe.
