Earlier this year I asked Paragon to look for the book
Traditional Culture of Li Ethnic Group
and they have now replied:

The following book is available at Paragon Book Gallery. You may find out more about this book and other titles on Asian arts by visiting Paragon Book Gallery's web site at ... item=31837.

Lizu Chuantong Wenhua
Traditional Culture of Li Ethnic Group

Wang, Xueping

10.5 x 15", approx. 200 pp., fully illustrated with color plates, text in Chinese and English, cloth, d.j., slipcase, Beijing, 2001.

This volume is about the Li ethnic group on their history, mythology, architecture, cultural, textile & accessories, agriculture, and work of arts.

Item # 31837
ISBN 7501152500

But it's a little pricey for me.

Thanks VERY much indeed for providing this information and link. Amazing that Paragon have managed to source this book as it seemed that it was only available in Hainan via a some copies in a Museum. Contact direct with the Chinese publisher had previously brought forth NO copies.

Yes, it is very expensive but, given the lack of information on the Li, if anyone is really interested in this fascinating group (with several sub-groups) then it is worth the investment. The book is full of photos, does have English text (although in rather a 'Chinglish' style) and includes many facets of the Li culture including textiles both being worn and made.

As this is a 'books' topic I am going to move this thread to the Books forum with a link remaining on the General Forum.

thanks again,
