      This is a complete history and visual guide to over 400 famous tartans. It is a comprehensive and informative visual directory of tartans, both ancient and modern. It contains a fascinating account of how tartan is woven into every aspect of the story of the Scottish nation, examining its history, origins, and contemporary uses. It shows how Scotland's heritage now extends far beyond her shores, and how tartan is used to unite and identify a diverse ancestral tradition. It is lavishly illustrated throughout with evocative fine art images and a complete directory of major tartan setts, from the Bruce clan to the Stewarts. It includes corporate and international tartans as well as family and associated tartans. This illustrated guide provides a detailed insight into the origins and history of tartan, from the very earliest samples, through those worn by the warring clans in the Stuart rebellions, to the Katsushika Japanese Dancers. The first section details the story of tartan, with information on the way the fabric and weaves developed and how it became a symbol of resistance.The main part of the book is a directory illustrating the major clan tartans followed by international and modern tartans, with a wealth of history and background to each. From the ancient Bruce family to Neil Armstrong, who took his family tartan to the moon, tartan is one of the most enduring symbols of national price and individual reputation. It is also a peculiarly inclusive, adapatable way of proclaiming allegiance and belonging.
