LOOKING AT TEXTILES  
A GUIDE TO TECHNICAL TERMS


by

Elena Phipps , Getty Publications

A colleague Asian art appraiser, Cynthia Shaver (who has written a number of books and articles on Asian textiles) drew my attention to this book.  It lists in great detail  the fundamentals of materials and techniques of textiles – I have just ordered it. 

It has a 73 page glossary and 78 color illustrations and is written by Elena Phipps,  the former textile conservator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

You can order from the Getty bookshop  – http://shop.getty.edu/product956.html

Cheers,
