Neil Braidwood: The Scots Magazine

SOMETHING big happened recently in Scottish publishing.

One of the oldest publications in the world, The Scots Magazine, got a makeover.

One of the magazine’s distinctive features was its yellow spine and compact size – more of a booklet than a magazine, really. All that has been swept away. The mag is physically bigger (B5 size), slimmer and has had a typographic overhaul. Bookshelves from Lerwick to Stranraer will be all out of kilter, as the May issue is added to readers’ collections.
