Publisher's description: At the intersection of art, design and social history, Beca Lipscombe & Lucy McKenzie: The Inventors of Tradition, now available in a second edition, is a subjective study of the history of the Scottish textiles industry since the 1930s. For decades, textiles were Scotland's primary industry and export, and Scottish wool, cashmere, tweed, leather, lace and tartan have been famed throughout the world for even longer. Formatted like a scrapbook, this volume brings together design swatches, product shots, film stills, interviews and the archival materials of individuals and companies in the Scottish textiles trade. In response to this wealth of material, the artist Lucy McKenzie (born 1977) and designer Beca Lipscombe (born 1973) have produced a series of new works including clothing, furniture and accessories in collaborative partnership with Caerlee Mills, Begg Scotland, Hawick Cashmere, Laura Lees, Jannette Murray, Mackintosh, Muehlbauer and Steven Purvis.
