Deal, David and Laura Hostetler trans: THE ART OF ETHNOGRAPHY. A Chinese 'Miao Album'. Seattle, 2006. lxvii, 178 pp. 180 illustrations, 16 in colour. Bibliography, index. 23x16 cm. Cloth.
By providing an introduction with complete translation and reproduction of text and illustrations for 'A Miao Album of Guizhou Province' the authors reveal the workings of a genre that is valued for the ethnohistorical information it affords on the minorities of south-west China, and the way they were regarded by Chinese culture more broadly. These albums are also prized collectors' items.
