Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0892363800, Hardcover)Brighten your coffee table with a special treat from Oaxaca, Mexico. In The Unbroken Thread, the Getty Trust presents a magnificent and unique collection of lavish, full-color photos and narrative that illustrates and describes the special lives--as well as the vibrant threads--that are woven into the centuries-old tradition of Mexico's Oaxacan fabrics. Kathryn Klein discusses techniques, from color-dying different fibers to colorfully weaving designs that are both symbolic and indicative of the wearer's community. She includes a chapter on the evolution of the weaving and the histories that it embodies. The 2,000-textile collection of the Regional Museum in Oaxaca is given special consideration. It was once housed in a 16th-century convent and has been restored to its original beauty.
