Hardcover, and dust cover is slightly torn.
Superb Full-Color Lavishly Illustrated African Art Book.
12" x 10.25", Hundreds of items from all over Africa illustrated in full colour. A remarkable book focusing on African Design in the following categories : Furniture, Containers, Musical Instruments, Weapons, Adornment, Textiles and Devotion. Ginzberg makes his case for the beauty of African Forms in mediums other than masks and figures, and he has chosen the items very well.
The first book devoted to traditional African crafts which covers all of Africa. Very well photographed and nicely proportioned objects on good quality paper in a very fine volume. Highly recommended.
