Art and the Order of Nature is a magnificently illustrated book in full color with glossary. It contains hundreds of color plates and close-ups of Indigenous textile patterns of the Philippines (Cordilleran peoples of northern Philippines/Luzon, Indigenous and Muslim peoples in Mindanao and Sulu, etc.) that are fully sourced to their place of tribal origin. This beautiful book is nearly impossible to find in North America, especially in new and unread condition, and is out-of-print. With hundreds of individual patterns and dozens of historical photographs, it provides tattoo artists and designers with many new forms of inspiration.
