Tartan: The Highland Habit
By (author) Hugh Cheape
This is a revised edition of the best-selling story of tartan. From moors to moon landings, from battlefields to high fashion, tartan has made an extraordinary impact. This fresh interpretation of the world’s most memorable fabric tells a story that is fascinating, colourful and distinctively Scottish. A full-colour section on individual clans enables the reader to find their own tartan and family history.
Hugh Cheape, formerly Head of the Scottish Material Culture Research Centre, National Museums Scotland, is now a Lecturer and Course Leader in the University of the Highlands and Islands.
