 Description:
The richly woven and embroidered textiles explored in this book belong to the Miao minority group of Guizhou province in south-west China. The Miao’s elaborate festival costumes are not only their most important possessions, but can be considered the major living visual art form of their culture. Over 20 such textiles from the British Museum’s collection are examined and illustrated here in detail and will undoubtedly provide designers at all levels with inspiration for new and unexpected ways for using colour and pattern in their own work.
