Romancing the Plaid
The other day I purchased Tartan: Romancing the Plaid, and I've been planning to post a review. But then I saw Annie Kelly's coverage for 1stdibs, complete with superb images. There's not much more for me to add, except to say the book includes many fun pop-culture photos that offer an interesting balance. Irreverent contemporary fashion, Abercrombie and Fitch ads, and Tiffany windows are juxtaposed with centuries-old paintings to convey tartan's broad appeal.
If you are a serious textile enthusiast, flip through the book if you can. Apart from the rich images, the text is comprehensive. It's a great resource.
BTW: The Scottish Weaver sells blankets similar to decorator Barrie Benson's as seen in Domino's October issue.
