Spectator book review of the Great History of Scotland Tapestry ...

Approaching 40,000 visitors have already seen the Great History of Scotland Tapestry

Andrew Crummy's major community artwork inspired by Sandy MacCall-Smith has been rightly admired far and wide since its unveiling in September 2013. Now the volume with all the panels pictured has been published - separately from an excellent earlier book which had described how it had been stitched and the tales of the people who stitched it [The Great Tapestry of Scotland: The Making of a Masterpiece by Susan Mansfield and Alistair Moffat, Birlinn, 2013.]

Both books are of course available from bookshops and amazon.

Many of those who helped create the original Prestonpans Tapestry that inspired MacCall-Smith to pick up the phone to Andrew Crummy in December 2010 have once again assisted in this magnificent artwork. And many are still at work on the forthcoming [May 3st 2014] Scottish Diaspora Tapestry
... long may the legacy continue ....
