Chinese textiles by Verity Wilson ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book tells many stories of Chinese life and legend through the sumptuous textiles that adorn its pages. It also shows how their visual brilliance and impressive workmanship were part of their allure for the Europeans who collected them and added their own stories to them. All the Chinese textiles in the V&A originally had a specific purpose, and it is those created for celebrations that dominate the selection in this book. Many pieces were made for birthdays and weddings, the latter providing occasions for splendid robes, palanquin hangings, quilts and bed curtains." "Verity Wilson focuses on more than a hundred of the V&A's most significant examples, almost none of them on permanent display. Although some are redolent of imperial China, the book also includes a large selection of pieces made after the fall of the Chinese empire in 1911 and on through the communist era. The painstaking techniques used to create the textiles, and the conditions surrounding their manufacture, are described in detail. Those who donated and sold Chinese textiles to the V&A also have a place in this book. The specially commissioned photography enables us to savour China's textile traditions in all their richness and dimity."--BOOK JACKET

Imperial Chinese robes : from the forbidden city by Ming Wilson ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Focusing on the dress and accessories of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), this exquisite book captures the grandeur of the garments worn by emperors and empresses for defined formal engagements. In Qing dynasty China, there were clear rules on what to wear on different occasions. Official dress was worn when the emperor performed sacrifices at the 'Temple of Heaven' and at other important rituals. Auspicious dress was for New Year, birthdays and weddings. Military dress for troop inspection; travelling dress for hunting and royal visits to provinces, and ordinary dress for events of a non-celebrative nature, such as mourning. When not performing public duties, however, the imperial family could freely choose which garments to wear - and this book also illustrates these more casual clothes with colourful and stunning fashion dresses made for the court ladies
