An authoritative compilation of tartans and their history.

Crossbarred patterns are common all over the world, but tartans, which originated in the Scottish Highlands and were systematized in the nineteenth century, have become a symbol of Scotland. This book provides a comprehensive look at the traditional aspects of tartans, including production method and coloration, as well as their modern adoption in everything from advertising to dress styles. It also delves into the secrets to the popularity of tartans in Japan. Includes full-color images of roughly one hundred different tartan samples classified by type, a chronology, and a glossary of related terms.
