Intricate artwork by Gray can be found on the first two pages of the book, stating "Property of Alasdair Gray, 20.7.59, 11 Findhorn Street Glasgow". The title "Lanark" is given and the pseudonym Robert Walker. On the next page there is a drawing of the building which the Elite café was based on. This building is situated at the Charing Cross end of Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow and is now a casino. Throughout the book there are numerous drawings/portraits including a draft of a drawing used on the front cover of Scottish Field.
There are also two letters in the book. One to Anne Scott regarding "Mavis Belfrage" and another to Andrew concerning general news.
