A lovely book, “Tartan: Romancing the Plaid” by Jeffrey Banks, covers the proud lineage of this timeless fabric, from kilts and scarves to ties and even haute couture. “William “Braveheart” Wallace did battle in it. Queen Victoria decked Balmoral in it. Madonna donned it to strut around the stage. Tartan, the beloved symbol of kin, clan and nation to the Scots, has evolved into the one of the world’s favorite fabrics.” $350 new, $75 used, available at Amazon.
