QUILTS OF SOUTHWEST CHINA. Marsha MacDowell and Lijun Zhang. Michigan State University Museum, East Lansing, 2016. Distributed by Indiana University Press, Bloomington. 154 pp. with 130 col. ills. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9787219098301 In English.
Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: For over 3,000 years in Southwest China, traditional bed coverings and other household items have been expertly fashioned, like American quilts, from small pieces of fabric patched and appliqued together to form artistic yet functional textiles. Accompanying a groundbreaking exhibition of the same name, Quilts of Southwest China sheds light on this important cultural heritage tradition through the research of a binational consortium of American and Chinese museums, led by the Michigan State University Museum and the Yunnan Nationalities Museum (Kunming). Beautiful color illustrations and side-by-side English and Chinese text will help readers uncover regional and cultural variations in these quilts of Southwest China, connections between the form and other Chinese textile traditions, and profiles of textile artists.
