Treasures is a free book for all of Scotland to share, celebrating the nation’s most loved possessions.
Available from bookshops and libraries across the nation, Treasures collects together stories and poems from the Scottish public with pieces from some of Scotland’s best-loved personalities.
The book is the culmination of a nationwide writing project, where members of the public were asked to submit their memories of their most treasured items online. You can read over three hundred stories submitted to the project in our ‘Read Stories’ section.
Over 150,000 copies of Treasures will be given out to the public during Book Week Scotland 2013. The book will be available for the duration of the week only - keep an eye out for copies around the region!
