A couple of new books you may be interested in:

"Hornbill and Dragon" Bernard Sellato, Elf Aquitaine Indonesie 1989.

In view of all the recent Borneo posts, (The textiles are quite magnificent!)
I feel this book will be of great interest to members. It shows textiles, woodcarvings, baskets, various other items and recent photos of ceremonies together with photos of women wearing the extraordinary ear ornaments which abound in Borneo. (some of these remind me of the ear pendants seen in the reliefs from Angkor).

"Undiscovered China" Catherine Boutzat and Philippe Fatin 2004

This is a magnificent account of Guizhou and its peoples, mainly Miao and
Dong and is illustrated with wonderful photos in colour and black and white. Those in colour almost seem to sparkle with beautiful blues, greens, pinks. Most show costume being worn and also the dramatic landscapes of this region. It also has an extensive text.
It should be reasonably easy to find as it is new out.

Both these books should be loaded onto my website by this evening

Very many thanks for info on these books. I ordered "Undiscovered China" some weeks ago from Amazon and it arrived about 10 days ago (so it is easily available) although I only got to glance at it this week. Yes, the photos are magnificent. My only frustration with the book is that many of the photos do not have a location which is sad from an identification of textiles point of view. However, I think it is a 'must'. The photos have so much dynamism, are really arresting and the scenery is beautiful.

"Hornbill and Dragon: Arts and Culture of Borneo" is out of print so a matter of luck if a copy can be found.

just for laughs... probably the writers want the places to be kept undiscovered.
