At the end of last year, I was at some markets and I came across this book for sale at the book shop. I was pretty interested, but I didn't have the cash for it. When I got home, I intended to buy it online but was unable to find it in my usual online stores. I was quite interested in it so I went back in early February, but was disappointed that they no longer had it on display. I was lucky enough that when I asked for it, they still had a copy! Yay!
I'm pretty pleased with this book. I've always been sort of interested in the history of clans, whether it be Scottish or otherwise. This book provided a mix of both the history of these clans with the colours they wear. It provided large images of these tartans and even dress tartans for the clans.
My only disappointment is that in some places, the print is not up to a great standard. I am referring to the darker tartans with a black base colour. In these cases, many times other dark colours on top of it have not printed correctly so they are barely visible. However, luckily, the author has provided written colour information for each tartan so I get the basic idea of them.
Overall, this is definitely one of my favourite books. It was cheap, but has a lot of great information!
