African Designs. from traditional sources.


The aim of this book is to present a sampling of the best in African art and desighn on the level at which it is finally judged—its own vigor and life.Such a work can never fully document all that the Dark Continent has produced, but it is hoped that a glimpse will be had,and a record will be maintained,of an art that can be both frighteningly barbaric and eloquently beautiful.The original plates for this book have in the main been produced by linocut prints.
