It’s an amazing world we live in! A few weeks ago, I read that the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its digitized publications. Truly amazing the scope of available works there. They cover topics from African Art to Prehistory. Above is a title that might be appealing to weavers and dyers, downloadable as a PDF.
