3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By MS Mclean on 9 Mar. 2011
Format: Paperback
this is an excellent introduction to the rich and varied art of Africa,
I read this book from cover to cover, and it was fascinating and well researched.
I bought this to replace a copy, but the book is a good read,
and inspired my art work during my art course.
Perhaps I 'd like to see more of the modern arts and crafts,
but there's always room for another book on African art

Excellent Reference 10 Oct. 2010
By Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for an Art 9 class and it provides more or less info than the newer edition. So far, it has been very useful for my class and I have no problem with it. Great price too.

Technicality and Tidbits 16 Nov. 2009
By Providencia Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Please keep in mind this review is by someone who does not have ANY interest in African Art. Nonetheless, the book is pretty technical, and I have to say, boring, and difficult to understand. It did fail to grab my attention in any way.

On a more positive note, it does offer many pictures, though small, of many art pieces, mostly sculptues and carvings. Also, it mentions some famous African Sculptures and African peoples who you may not have heard about.
