If anyone is planning on visiting Taipei in Taiwan this summer, there is currently a good exhibition on at the National Palace Museum called: The Splendor of Ethnic Costumes and Accessories from Guizhou, which runs until 1st September.

There are about 30 costumes mainly taken from the Guizhou National Culture Palace collection with some from Taiwan's Fu Ren University. There are also accessories such as quilt covers, baby carriers, silver and shoes (unfortunately there is a lack of batik and surprisingly only one batik baby carrier to represent the Gejia textile tradition!).

The web page is: http://theme.npm.edu.tw/exh104/guizhou/ch/ch00.html

As expected, there is a very glossy book that goes with the exhibition. It is paperback but runs to more than 300 pages, including all the costumes, silver etc as well as 60+ pages of old paintings and other documents depicting the minorities of Guizhou and their environs dating back to the 1800s. It costs NT$900 (US$30, so not over expensive).

Details:

The Splendor of Ethnic Costumes and Accessories from Guizhou.
ISBN 978-957-562-616-7
