Booknews
In the opening essay, textile collector and specialist Gillow gives an overview of African textiles. He describes the types of materials and decorative techniques employed, including barkcloth, raffia, bobolanfini, adinkra, indigo, tie-dyeing, and various resist dyeing techniques such as stitch, starch, wax, mud, and clamp resist. Thirty examples from the textile collection of the British Museum are featured in the catalogue that follows, with superb color photos of each. A glossary, bibliography and index are included.
