1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

D'après le site Internet de l'Exposition: Wolfgang Leupold (1895-1986) was appointed as a geologist by the Dutch East Indies Administration and spent six years in the Northeast of Borneo with his family, from 1921 to 1927. This stay is documented through artefacts, pictures and records. Leupold's two sons Urs and Rudolf donated these personal keepsakes to the Ethnographic Museum of Zurich University in 2008 in order to preserve knowledge that had been handed down within the family and, at the same time, make it available for research purposes. Leupold's collection, now presented to the public for the first time, goes far beyond a mere biographical dimension. It offers broader historical insights and valuable objects preserving the skills and knowledge that went into their making

Striking patterns : global traces in local ikat fashion by Paola von Wyss-Giacosa( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present publication takes readers on a journey to a handicraft that causes not only experts to prick up their ears but laypeople as well, capturing their imagination with each new chapter. At the same time, ethnologists and art historians aid in becoming familiar with the object of research from various directions. Ikat, the technology and art form of creating complex patterns on hand-woven textiles that is practiced primarily in Indonesia, India, and Central and South America, has continuously developed over the course of centuries. Foreign influences were absorbed and creatively integrated into local patterns. The main objects of research are works by female master weavers from eastern Indonesia and Timor-Leste. Their fabrics reflect not only fashion and modernity but also aspects of globalization. Exhibition: Museum der Kulturen Basel, Switzerland (21.10.2016-26.3.2017)."--Publisher's description
