Customer Review

on 6 January 2011
So why this title for my review?

This is a line (and title) from a very old Scottish song about a gentleman named Donald and his kilt. Therein lies the link - TARTAN! The book deals with the history and complex relationship that this textile has had both in a historical and contemporary setting - just think Anglomania, Vivienne Westwood and the late Alexander McQueen.
What I particularly like is that it avoids the usual chronology and deals for example with matters of how tartan affects the perception of the wearer, warlike, ceremonial, celebratory? How many other fabrics could be used or described in this way? Never out of fashion and always with a story to tell

An excellent book for all walks of life and you won't tire of the photography
