Hardcover. Another great book published by Harry N. Abrams. 256 pages, but this is not just a glossy coffee table book but contains a very well narrated account of the topic. It is a comprehensive study of the rock paintings and engravings of the African continent.
The book contains 400 full colour photographs and line drawings plus 7 maps. These photographs also include living people and animals. The maps depict Africa, the language groups, African peoples, the distribution of rock art on the continent, and the specific distribution in Southern, Eastern and Northern Africa respectively.
