320 pp, large 4to (11 5/16" H). "Subtle, enigmatic patterns woven into Cambodian silk textiles speak of origins in an ancient past, with resonances continuing to the present. While Cambodian textiles may justifiably be regarded as works of art in Western terms, their cultural relevance and vitality, which defines their quintessential character, is only beginning to be be appreciated and understood. This is the first book to document and explain this rich textile and costume tradition. Written for collectors, curators, travellers, textile artists and aficionados, it identifies and explains the essential role textiles play in traditional Cambodian life, society and religious practices. Lavishly illustrated with over 300 colour images, the book includes images of antique textiles held in both private collections and major public institutions, historic images and specially-commissioned line drawings and diagrams. (It) also includes: end notes supplementing the information in each chapter; appendices with a word list in Khmer script and transliterated Roman forms; a technical and foreign language glossary; a full bibliography and index." One tiny dint on front board. Dust jacket has some small line indentations and light rubbing on rear panel, a series of very small and tiny dints on front panel - mainly at top. one or two other very small dints elsewhere on jacket.
