About This Item

(Roodepoort: SHADE, no date). 210 x 292 mm; saddle-stitched card wrappers; pp. 36; map; colour illustrations. Wrappers slightly rubbed and creased; some discreet annotations. Good condition. Illustrated and annotated catalogue. "In the rural areas of southern Africa an extremely rich heritage of handcrafted art has been preserved by the black people. Uncorrupted by industrialisation, yet perfected by modern ideas, the objects which started as simple household items have been adapted and embellished for contemporary use. The craftspeople retain their natural artistry, but the products spread further to people who value beauty with function. This brochure illustrates a range of these handcrafted items, and tells the story of the people who make them. It brings together established groups that started out as Church-based development projects striving to become economically independent." .
