Most Information Recorded on the Quipus Consists of Numbers in a Decimal System
It was during this period that many design houses began to hire artists to sketch or paint designs for garments.
The images were shown to clients, which was much cheaper than producing an actual sample garment in the workroom.
If the client liked their embroidery digitizing design, they ordered it and the resulting garment made money for the house.
Thus, the tradition of designers sketching out garment designs instead of presenting completed garments on models to customers began as an economy.
In the early years of the Spanish conquest of Peru, Spanish officials often relied on the quipus to settle disputes over local tribute payments or goods production. Spanish chroniclers also concluded that quipus were used primarily as mnemonic devices to communicate and record numerical information.
Quipucamayocs (Quechua khipukamayuq "khipu specialist") could be summoned to court, where their bookkeeping was recognised as valid documentation of past payments.
Most libraries usually have a very well written, legally tight, acquisitions policy which rejects beforehand any object which is not some kind of document.
There are some exceptions.
Children's libraries sometimes have a toy collection, whose individual items are lent out after being cataloged as realia, or under a more specific digitizing material designation such as toy, or game.
Some large libraries can have a special mandate of keeping objects related to a literary collection or very large libraries can have a public relations department which can find museum objects useful for enhancing or promoting the general collection.
Such a library is more likely to prize realia for their associations with writers, subjects, or themes in the library's collection rather than for their own intrinsic worth, artistic merit, historical significance, or scientific value.
Examples might include a feather pen believed to have been owned by John Hancock, lead type from Benjamin Franklin's printing press, or a collection of Vietnam era canteens, mess kits, uniforms, combat boots, etc. used in a "hands on" exhibit for children to illustrate the Vietnam War.
