Have you actually seen the real book? There are two or three members who have had the book on order for several months but the delivery has been delayed and delayed. I gather that the Frasers have been very particular about the quality of the printing.

It sounds as if it will be a great book when it is published. I know that it includes some photos of pieces in the collection of one our forum members.

You will all be happy to know that Mantles of Merit is in the bookstores in Thailand now, or at least one bookstore here in Chiang Mai: BookZone, which is also in Bangkok. Amazon should be soon to follow. It is well worth the wait, with lots of very good photos and information. It is hardback, published by River Books.

ALSO: Michael Howard's revised book on the textiles of Burma's hilltribes, called Textiles of the Highland Peoples of Burma; Volume I: The Naga, Chin, Jingpho, and Other Baric-speaking Groups, and published by White Lotus Press, is also available. The second volume will deal with the remaining groups: Tai, Upland Burmish, Karen, Lolo, Upland Mon-Khmer, Rwand, and Hmong-Mien, plus include a concluding chapter for both volumes. I got this one locally at Suriwong Books.

These ought to put the textiles of Burma on the map, so to speak! And even moreso, bring some attention and understanding to that little-known region which is a fascinating cultural crossroads.

Further to the information on James Saul's book 'The Naga of Burma' above I am, with regret, posting a link to his obituary in Hali http://www.hali.com/NewsAll.aspx?Action ... 1ea5eac978 Sadly Jamie died earlier this year at the end of a two-week trek in the remote Somra Tract of Myanmar near the border with India whilst pursuing his passion for the Nagas and their culture. He was accompanied on the trek by forum member Digna and her husband Neil who had also had the great good fortune to join him on several earlier research trips in the region. Neil has also directed me to a eulogy on the website of SPNH.com (Society for the Preservation and Promotion of Naga Heritage e.V.) http://www.spnh.com/Pages/English/Obitu ... _Saul.html
