In this book, one can see 173 sub branch of the Miao's different festival costumes, he named these different branches according to the location-a model town or village, I myself is Miao too, I think his classification is very scientific, Mr. Wu is a real expert on Miao costumes, I've learned too much from this book, this is a highly recommend book.

Book 2: One Needle, One Thread
Author, Photographer:
Tomoko Torimaru
I'm not familiar with this author, so I don't give any detailed introduction to her. I've read this book carefully, this is an excellent book on Guizhou Miao embroidery techniques, the information is very detailed, from the point of mine, I think she is the best field study expert on Guizhou Miao embroidery techniques.
Of course I heard there is one lady from Japan called " Big bird", she is also an excellent textile expert, unfortunately I didn't have a chance to read her works. Hope I can have a chance to read her works in the future, and I will put on her works on my web site.
