The Great Tapestry of Scotland
Available in Stock
‘The history of a nation written and made by a thousand people’, the Great Tapestry of Scotland, now in the Scottish Parliament, was the brainchild of author Alexander McCall Smith. The historian Alistair Moffat chose the subjects to tell Scotland’s story in 168 panels, which were drawn by Andrew Crummy, and stitched by a thousand volunteers, supervised by Dora Wilkie. After McCall Smith's foreword and introduction by Moffat, this volume illustrates each panel, with an historical commentary on its facing page.
