African Crafts and Craftsmen.


A beautiful picture book and at the same time an authoritative work,African Crafts and about the traditional crafts of West Africa and the people who practice them.Though they are very much alive today,these crafts are also immediatly threatened,and it would not be an exaggeration to say that in the forseeable future,the life-styles and arts documented in this book will have disappeared.
