Way back in October 2005, Nick Graham posted an entry on Alamance Plaid. Just a little over two years later, here’s my response to Nick’s post. Written by Alexander W. McAlister, The Eternal Verities of Golf is a “study in philosophy and the ancient game.” It dispenses bits of wisdom like “forgetting the things which are behind” and “swear not at all.” (Which all explain why I’m a really, really, really bad golfer.) The most interesting part of the book from my perspective, however, is that it is wrapped in plaid cloth–much like the Alamance Plaid entry. We’ve got two copies of the book, and they are both covered in different types of plaid cloth.
