Excellent book on masks of the world. 2 Dec 2012
By James I. Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Hardcover, illustrated boards with matching DJ. 9" tall x 11.25" wide. 160 pages, over 350 masks in color, mostly 2-3 masks to a page. Short bibliography.. By Douglas Congdon-Martin & Jim Pieper. Published by Schiffer Publishing, in association with The California Heritage Museum, 1999.

Featuring mostly unpublished masks from private collections, this is a good pictoral introduction to the masks of the world. There is a (short) introducrion and a (short) article on mask-making, followed by sections on Africa, Asia and the Asian Pacific, Europe and The Americas. There is a very nice selection of masks pictured from Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Burkina Fasso, Nigeria, Cameroon, Congo, Angola, Tanzania, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, China, Japan, Indonesia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Europe, Canada, the U.S., Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador, and Bolivia. The mask descriptions are barely adequate, and admitedly this is not an "important" or scholarly work, but it is a fun book to casually browse through.

Fascinating Book 15 Aug 2007
By doll lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I enjoy this book every time I look at it. The culture of Papua is beautifully told and well illustrated. A good introduction for me about a
country I will never be able to visit.
