Taylor, Thomasina, An Essay on Ancient Peruvian Textiles, Ilene Books, 2013, ed. 67


A curious little booklet that explores the materials and weaves, imagery and color of ancient Peruvian textiles. On the reverse side of the accordion "...is a representation of a checkerboard composite step pattern with bat-like figures." The size of this book and the care taken in its binding, would seem to be the author's way of paying respects to the sources of this rich indigenous knowledge.

14 double-sided pages, individual pages 2.25" (h) x 2" (w), and when fully open 2' 4".
