I have just acquired locally (Chiang Mai) a new and most welcome book of the above name by Gillian Green, an Australian who has apparently been very active in the study and exhibition of these textiles. I've only perused the book, but it appears to include a broad spectrum of information, from the history of the country, people, and textiles, to the design of their looms (which have beautifully carved and sometimes lacquered components), to textile designs, modern costumes, religious textiles and 'ship cloths'. She has included several glossaries as well. The book is large format, nicely hardbound, and full of beautiful color photos. I paid 1800baht, or around $45. Published in 2003 by River Books Co., Ltd., 396 Maharaj Road, Tatien, Bangkok 10200; email- riverps@ksc.th.com; website- www.riverbooksbk.com

This is really the wrong thread for a web link but I thought it might be interesting to post it here. I found some web pages on the Institute for Khmer Traditional Textiles (IKTT) at: http://www.esprit-libre.org/iktt/en/index.html It is not a 'visual' site but some interesting text.

As a customer of Select Books in Singapore I received their latest booklist today which included 'Traditional Textiles of Cambodia' which I have ordered this evening. http://www.selectbooks.com.sg/gettitle.cfm/ID/33706

Select take credit cards and operate a secure site as well as being very efficient.
