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 420 million years of Scottish history and achievement. Involving a thousand stitchers from around the country who worked on 165 separate panels, the tapestry is one of the biggest community arts projects ever to have taken place in Scotland.
The Great Tapestry of Scotland tells the story of this extraordinary undertaking, from its launch in 2011 to the preparations for the first public exhibition of the finished work at the Scottish Parliament. Featuring photographs of the various stages of the design process together with a selection of Andrew Crumm's final designs and finished panels, this is the unique record of the making of a masterpiece.
