The Story of Scottish Design



Published to coincide with the opening of V&A Dundee, this is the first major survey of Scottish design history from 1500 to the present day. This inspiring and hugely varied volume explores more than sixty disciplines, from early manuscripts and vernacular furniture to urban planning, textile design, the emergence of videogame development in Dundee, and Scotland’s role as a world leader in renewable technology development.

Figures such as architect Robert Adam, engineer Thomas Telford, designer Christopher Dresser, architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, artist Eduardo Paolozzi and Textile designer Bernat Klein are testament to Scotland’s role as a major player in the story of design.
