This is a really sumptuous book - if you are as keen on embroidered, woven, appliqued, tie-dyed fabrics as I am, the illustrations are almost 3D - absolutely beautiful. There are new insights into the significance of these textiles which add to an understanding of the cultural tradition of North Africa as a whole. There is a separate chapter on Ethiopian textiles. This volume has a good index, glossary of terms and scholarly bibliography.
