If you are looking for a general overview of textiles from these regions, the book will serve your purpose. The photographs are of very high quality and the narrative is engaging. I gave the book a 5 because of the beauty of the cover, the informative narrative and the photographs. For the textiles themselves, I was left with a feeling that I had seen much of it before in other books, but I believe that is because of the "overview" character of the collection.
