“At the intersection between art, design and social history, “The Inventors of Tradition” is a subjective study of the history of the Scottish textiles industry since the 1930s. It brings together samples of world-class design, the archive material of individuals and companies and a series of short documentary films sourced from the Scottish Screen Archive. In response to this material the artist Lucy McKenzie and designer Beca Lipscombe, from Atelier, have produced a series of new works including clothing, furniture and accessories.” (Cornerhouse)

This book features an introduction by Atelier (Beca Lipscombe, Lucy McKenzie) and Panel (Catriona Duffy, Lucy McEachan), and texts by Lucy McKenzie, Mairi MacKenzie, Nicholas Oddy, Jonathan Murray and Linda Watson.
