    Scottish Tartans and Highland Dress: A Very Peculiar History

    Found this wee book at the British Emporium, a British grocery in Grapevine, Texas today, and I thought the rabble might appreciate knowing about it (if you don’t already).

    In fact, X Marks the Scot has a mention in the Introduction as creator of the first “techie tartan.”

    Technically the X Marks Tartan is listed as "The world's first internet Tartan".

    And it was described as such in the body text itself.

    It may be too soon for you to have finished reading, but it would be great if you would post a review when you do get to the end of the book. It's not one I have seen or heard of before.
