Headwraps: A Global Journey
Georgia Scott (au). So many people all over the world cover their heads. Scott set off on an adventure across 5 continents to document the world’s headwraps. This book recreates her travels, taking us to varied cultures in such countries as the Czech Republic, Malaysia, India, & Nigeria. Scott considers how & why the turban exists in such variety. Headwraps can be made of silk, cotton, gauze, muslin, wool & other fabrics, & can be tossed, wrapped, draped, tucked, tied or pinned in hundreds of styles. Scott researched the styles, documented the folklore, & snapped color photos of headwraps wherever she went. The result is a stunning collection of images & anecdotes of a remarkable journey to chronicle our mysterious & fascinating efforts to cover our heads.
