Also newly available is the May/June issue of 'Arts of Asia' which features a long cover article on 'Bronzes of the Dong Son Culture of Vietnam', a subject which has been discussed here on various threads. Some very handsome examples are shown.

Also featured is a very nice article on 'Rawang Plaiting and Weaving' by Michael Howard. The Rawang live in a remote area in the northernmost part of Burma and are difficult to visit, consequently little is known about them. Luckily, there is a small settlement of them near Chiang Mai and Michael has studied them here, as well as reviewed the available references for his definitive article. He includes numerous photos of both baskets and weavings, as well as the weavers at work.

Thanks to Susan alerting me about this issue of Arts of Asia I have now received a copy. It is an exellent edition, not only the articles that Susan mentions but others which cover areas of considerable interest to forum members as this is: "Southeast Asian Art Edition featuring exotic countries of Vietnam, Thailand, Burma, China, The Philippines, including Turkey"!!! Even some of the adverts have joined into the Dong son drum theme!

I have always found Arts of Asia very speedy with sending issues. Here is the link for this one ... 07_may_jun which is now a 'back issue'.
