Early Nasca Needlework

1997: Laurence King Publishing, London. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #2049536
ISBN: 9781856690881

This work concentrates exclusively on the elaborately embroidered textiles from the Ica and Nasca valley regions in south-coastal Peru. Focusing on the supernatural figures depicted in these vividly coloured textiles, it brings together textiles, ceramics and gold from museums and private collections around the world to document the techniques and style of Nasca needlework. It also suggests that the more widely-known Paracas needlework may have been influenced by that of the early Nasca culture.
