Best Book on Borneo Beads Sep 16, 2005
I picked up this book in Borneo and was amazed by its beauty, amount of information, and its incredibly low price for a book of this quality. I have been collecting beadwork from Borneo during 7 trips over the past 20 years and found this book very useful in evaluating and understanding my collection. Heidi Munan is the authority on Borneo beads having the credentials of living in Sarawak for 40 years and traveling throughout Borneo to visit with tribal people to view their beads and how they use them as daily ornamentals, family heirlooms, and for ceremonial events. She also describes where they came from, the significance of individual beads, and how they may be used in various crafts and appareil. She has also written several other books about Borneo and is the Honary Curator of Beads at the Sarawak Museum. If you are interested in Borneo, tribal art, or beads in general you must have this book.
