Title: Textile Messages
Subtitle: Inscribed Fabrics from Roman to Abbasid Egypt
Edited By: C. Fluck
G. Helmecke
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=24640
Series Title: Studies in Textile and Costume History
Description:

The practice to supply textiles with inscriptions is well known in Egypt
from Pharaonic times onwards. Nevertheless systematic studies on inscribed
fabrics have been neglected until the middle of the 1990s when they almost
simultaneously caught the interest of various scholars. This richly
illustrated volume is a first compilation of what is known on the subject
so far. It concentrates on textiles of the first millennium AD, a period of
changing cultures, religions and languages in Egypt, mirrored by the Greek,
Coptic and Arabic inscriptions on the fabrics. The emphasis lies on the
historical, linguistic, sociological and artistic aspects of these
textiles. Numerous fabrics from international collections are introduced.
Further articles deal with the radiocarbon dating and technical aspects.
