Collins Harvill , 1989. Reprint. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Clean unmarked pages, jacket moderately worn at the edges, short tears to base of spine. At the time of writing, mine is the 12th consecutive 5-Star review, and this is certainly no coincidence. This book can be considered as one of the best photographic representations of "fully decorated" Tribal Africa ever published. Peoples of the entire continent of Africa are featured, and although nobody would claim that the book depicts "everyday" or "typical" Africa or Africans, it certainly does a fabulous job of presenting "Africa Adorned". This is tribal, ethnic and national African body decoration at its most striking, enigmatic, personal and proud. This is the Body As Art, and the Peoples Of Africa reveling in their history and tradition. The contents are : East Africa - The Body As Art; Equatoria - Treasures and Trade ; Old Africa - Pockets Of Ancient Tradition ; The Savannah - Dictates Of The Desert ; The Maghreb - A Natural Flamboyance ; The Horn - Links With The East. The book also contains fantastic field photos, as well as "characteristic" native "models", and artifact photographs. The book also boasts a well-researched and informative text. (Reader review). A large, heavy volume. 14" x 105", 304 pages, 457 illustrations, 414 of which are in full color, 5 maps, Bibliography, Index. 288 pages. Quantity Available: 1. ISBN/EAN: 9780002166225.
