I originaly posted this information on a thread relating to Miao Taijiang textiles and post the relevant details of this excellent book here too.

“Miao Costumes of Southeast Guizhou – Illustrated Research Dictionary” published by Fu Jen Catholic University Textiles and Clothing Graduate Institute: Textiles and Clothing Culture Centre in 2000. ISBN 957-9000-92-1. Fabric Hardcover in Slipcase, 436pp.

This book is a fantastic photographic account of 215 peices in the Fu Jen Catholic University Miao Textile Collection with each piece fully illustrated in colour and in the majority of cases in close up detail. The text introduces the collection quite sytematically by geograhic location; demonstration and description of how each style is worn - according to gender, age marital status and occasion and finally by explaining each style in detail - namely how weaving, dyeing, embroidery and other decorative techniques have been accomplished as well as giving a broad outline as to the design and symbolism of the different motifs and patterns used. The only drawback of this incredible publication for many people will be that it is entirely in Chinese (except for a brief Foreword by Sr Maryta Laumann Professor and Head of the Textiles and Clothing Graduate Institute).
I have yet to find a link across to the Textile collection at the university but Fu Jen University webpage - with links across to the Textile Institute - is as follows:
