    I think there is a good catalogue for this exhibition this year and would like to buy one. Can I order it on Amazon or buy it from you? Details of author name, title and cost with postage would be very welcome, please.
    I had two trips in the early 1990’s with the Ministry of Culture and the Ethnogrphic Museum, collecting local baskets for the British Museum and had wonderful trips.
