5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive study of a fascinating subject. 18 Feb. 2006
By K. Kawasaki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book, meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated. It's approach is thematic with an emphasis on various influences that shaped the history and styles of Southeast Asian textile, as well as the cultural significance that textile played in the region. The works examined were primarily drawn from the excellent collection of the National Gallery of Australia. The commentary on each work is detailed in terms of the techniques and motifs. Although it is quite comprehensive in coverage, because it is organized thematically rather than geographically, if you are looking for the styles and examples of a particular culture, you'll have to pick through the book. Historical photographs offer additional insights into how the textiles were used throughout the Southeast Asia. The writing is good and easy to follow once you get accustomed to the technical terms. I am new to this subject and my reading probably has not yet assessed the full extent of the book's merit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the Textile Collector 9 Sept. 2009
By Lonnie Mccaskill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Textiles of Southeast Asia is a great book for those collecting or interested in the history, culture and meaning of these textiles. It is well written and has great photos and discriptions. There are plenty of newer textiles that are beautiful but if you are looking for antique pieces this is a great field guide.
