THIS BOOK IS OUT OF PRINT -- THIS BOOK IS NEW HOWEVER THERE ARE SOME SPOTS ON THE DUST JACKET THAT ARE NOT PERFECT (BUT OVERALL IN NEAR PERFECT CONDITION FOR A BOOK PUBLISHING IN 2001) THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS STUDY OF THE T'BOLI WEAVERS OF LAKE SEBU AND THEIR LEGENDARY WEAVING KNOW AS T'NALAK CLOTH. THE BOOK IS NOT ONLY BEAUTIFUL BUT SERVES AS A STUDY IN WHAT IS SOON TO BE A LOST ART. THIS PROJECT WAS DONE AS A WAY OF PRESERVING A RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING CULTURE. THE TEXT IS DONE INTELLIGENTLY AND THE PHOTOGRAPH CAPTURES THE BEAUTY OF THE T'NALAK WEAVINGS
