Synopsis:

Over the past fifty years, archaeological explorations in China have unearthed a wealth of textile materials, some dating as far back as five thousand years. In this magnificently researched and illustrated book, preeminent Western and Chinese scholars draw upon these spectacular discoveries to provide the most thorough account of the history of silk ever written.

Encyclopedic in breadth, the volume presents a chronological history of silk from a variety of perspectives, including archaeological, technological, art historical, and aesthetic. The contributors explore the range of uses for silk, from the everyday to the sublime. By directly connecting recently found textile artifacts to specific references in China's vast historical literature, they illuminate the evolution of silk making and the driving social forces that have inspired the creation of innovative textiles through the millennia.

Book Description:

The most comprehensive history of Chinese silk ever written, this volume investigates spectacular recent archaeological finds and explores the fascinating influence of silk on Chinese civilization and art through several millennia.

Book Description In diesem aufwendig recherchierten und illustrierten Buch veröffentlichen die führenden internationalen Wissenschaftler spektakuläre neue Erkenntnisse, um somit eine nach heutigem Wissen vollständige Geschichte der chinesischen Seide vorzulegen. Enzyklopädisch und chronologisch wird die Seide von verschiedenen Perspektiven aus beleuchtet, dazu gehören der archäologische, technologische, kunsthistorische und ästhetische Blick. Vom Alltäglichen bis zum Sublim-Heiligen werden alle Bereiche, in denen Seide verwendet wird, behandelt. Erst kürzlich entdeckte Textilartefakte werden direkt in Bezug gesetzt zu literarischen Quellen, so dass die Evolution der Seidenherstellung und die zugrunde liegenden gesellschaftlichen Triebfedern sowie die Erfindung innovativer Textilien durch die Jahrtausende hindurch nachvollziehbar werden. Ein unverzichtbares Standardwerk zum Thema! (Text engl.) 23 x 30,5 cm, 624 S., 650 Abb., davon 600 farbig, geb. Bookseller Inventory # 583502
