It appears in February, June and October.  We welcome input from members and any other readers – send a review of a book you’ve read or an exhibition you’ve seen, or even something more elaborate.

Most issues feature a report on a key textile collection, Asian textile resources on-line and also report on current research and recent publications. They each include a valuable section highlighting lectures and new and ongoing exhibitions in Britain and abroad.

Each issue also gives fuller details about the latest programme of talks and visits arranged by OATG for its members.
