Repeal of the Act Proscribing the Wearing of Highland Dress – poster
Have you ever wondered how the world – and Scotland in particular – would be different if just one thing was changed? Would it be just a wee bit different, or a wholly different universe?
The 'What if…?' question is a staple of genre fiction, where it has been used to conjure countless different realities. The What if…? collection poses such questions about Scotland through the medium of advertisements!
What's the story here?
What if the proclamation that the ban on Highland Dress being abolished had been printed and circulated across the land, when it was announced in 1782?
This eye-catching drawing takes inspiration from twentieth century design and illustration and uses a muted colour palette to give a vintage feeling.
