The brainchild of bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith, historian Alistair Moffat, and artist Andrew Crummy, the Great Tapestry of Scotland is an outstanding celebration of thousands of years of Scottish history and achievement, from the end of the last Ice Age to Dolly the Sheep. More than 1,000 volunteer stitches spent a total of 60, 000 sewing hours using more than 300 miles of yarn to create the 160 panels that make up this extraordinary work of art. Like the Bayeux tapestry, the Great Tapestry of Scotland has been created on embroidered cloth, and is annotated in English, Gaelic, Scots and Latin. This book tells the story of this unique undertaking--one of the biggest community arts projects ever to take place in Scotland--and includes full-color plates of a selection of the panels from the completed tapestry, together with descriptive and explanatory material.
