A very welcome addition to my library:

Ma, Jen Rong and Ma, Li (2002). Guizhou shaoshu minzu: Beishan (Guizhou Minority Tribe: Baby Carriers). Guizhou Peoples Publishing. ISBN 7221060177.
287 pages of full colour plates with great detail and comparisons. Hardcover within a magnetic strip close case.
Illustrating the difficulty of locality attribution effected by the incorporation and adaption of techniques of adjacent peoples. The Miao focus prominently although Dong, Bouyei, Ge Jia and Shui are well represented too. A fantastic book available in Chinese only.

File comment: Guizhou Shaoshu Minzu: Beishan. (Guizhou Minority tribes: Baby carriers).

Guizhou Minzu Shaoshu-Beishan decorative boxcase. Text in Chinese. The women of the minority population in Gui Zhou, especially the Miao use a piece of embroidered fabric carries the babies on their backs when they work in the fields, participate in housework or visit relatives in the family. This book style baby carriers, models and patterns and sewing techniques such as wax dyeing, embroidery, weaving and applied. A beautiful book, richly illustrated.
