The Silk Roads Part III: Weaving Fantasies 

Presenter: The Nourishment Projects (Soma Roy)

Etymologically, "text" and "textiles" share a common root, meaning "to weave".  Our Silk Roads series continues weaving the chronicle by transitioning from luxury textiles to resplendent manuscripts that illuminate the bewitching written world.
