Review, Nocturne magazine, Summer/Autumn
Supported by lavish illustrations, Tartan And Tweed is a beautiful homage to the strong cultural identity and history of the fabrics, and a tribute to their growing and continued popularity within fashion design, music, art and film.
Tartan and Tweed, a well illustrated book, gives the history of tartan and tweed from their beginnings in the Scottish Highlands to their popularity and use in contemporary fashion design, music, art and film.
Appealing to anyone exploring the language of fashion, Tartan + Tweed, from journalists Young and Martin, weaves the material history of these ubiquitous textiles, chronicling their enduring popularity and shifting cultural meanings in fluid prose and plentiful illustrations.
