Africa Adorned - Angela Fisher
Africa Adorned by Angela Fisher is a visual delight, a guide for the collector and an important contribution to the study of African art. The book is a Panorama of Jewelry, Dress, Body Decoration, and Hairstyle. Traveling from the Sahara to Cape horn, the author lived among peoples of diverse culture, studying and photographing not only what they wear but what meaning the objects and decorative forms have in their daily lives. The stories she tells along with the photos and illustrations provide a view of African life and its chief visual expression that has never been equaled.
