Excellent detailed reference on Miao clothing, textiles, jewellery and ornament. The book delves into the numerous different local styles within the Miao minority group, each with their own distinctive decoration and patterns. Very well-illustrated in colour showing the textiles, ornamentation plus numerous photographs of Miao women in their dress, together with scenes of local life and ceremony. Benefits further from a dual text in English and Chinese. The most comprehensive work we have seen on the subject. Recommended.
