From the land of the thunder dragon: Textile Arts of Bhutan

Finally found a copy of this wonderful book edited by Diana Myers and Susan Bean and with writing by the important, late Michael Aris; it’s about way more than just textiles, but about life in Bhutan and history, too. It’s for the collection I’m amassing of Bhutan printed matter (which I intend to donate some day in the not too distant future to a place TBD.) Nope, I didn’t pay $170 for this book….that’s why it’s taken me so long to find a less expensive, used one.

    Hi Lisa,

    It was that very exhibit (that this exhibition catalog is based on), held in 1994 at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem MA (outside Boston, not far from where I live) that put first put Bhutan on my radar.

    I could not get that exhibit out of my mind, saw it twice, poured over the catalog daily for a long time and vowed to travel to Bhutan (which I finally did but not until 2006).

    I just finished reading your book – it’s wonderful!
