National Libraries of Scotland – Plague

National Libraries of Scotland

The National Library of Scotland’s Plague exhibition explored the contagious diseases afflicting people in Scotland over the past 700 years. Visitors discovered how Scotland dealt with these diseases, through official and personal papers, religious writing, literature, press reactions and responses from folk medicine and the sciences.

Old School Fabrications were commissioned to fabricate a dramatic environment for the exhibition content. This involved building a series of exhibition spaces and adding theatrical elements throughout.
