The fantastic book "Baby Carriers" published by the Taiwan National Museum of Prehistory is currently available online for free! Here is the link valid on July 25th http://beta.nmp.gov.tw/main/07/7-3/3-2/3-2-27.htm
This is a phenomenally well produced, laid out and key reference book. Enjoy!

I think that the link to the full book should be http://beta.nmp.gov.tw/main/07/7-3/3-2/2-27/048_153.pdf (16.27 MB). This really is a fantastic resource on-line!

Pamela, no the link I initially posted is correct. Am not sure what is happening your end - something strange - as it is not what is happening when I do this.

When I click the following link http://beta.nmp.gov.tw/main/07/7-3/3-2/3-2-27.htm
I am taken to what is effectively the CONTENTS PAGE for the book.

On this link I can scroll down to the PLATES section and then select a GROUP (Miao, Shui, Zhuang etc.) I want to view.

So, for example, when I click on MIAO this immediately takes me to the pdf file represented by http://beta.nmp.gov.tw/main/07/7-3/3-2/2-27/048_153.pdf and I am directed to the Miao section (pages 48 - 153 in the hard copy of the book).
Note that page numbers also appear on the pdf file as they appear in the hard copy, BUT beause each section is now its OWN pdf file the hard copy page numbering falls away. For example, Page 1 on the Miao pdf file is page 48 (the start of the Miao section) in the hard copy.

Further on if I click on the Zhuang section I am taken to a pdf represented by http://beta.nmp.gov.tw/main/07/7-3/3-2/2-27/166_199.pdf and so on through.

It appears to be correctly working as initially linked.
