Description
This beautifully illustrated volume introduces a little-known yet outstanding collection of Asian textiles in the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas. Focusing on 95 pieces from the Indian subcontinent, Iran, China, and Japan, the book considers archaeological reports, 19th-century travelers' journals, trade documents, literature, and paintings to place each item in context. Here too is information about production techniques, symbolism, purpose, patronage, and trade. The book is beautifully illustrated with 91 color plates, 17 additional figures, and single- and double-page close-up detail views, in which you can count the threads of a golden dragon embroidery.
