I have just received this book today and as soon as I opened it I was mesmerized. As a fashion design student I am constantly looking for inspiration, I have finally found a book that offers extraordinary, beautifully detailed photographs that would grace any Theme or Colour board. The devil is in the detail as they say, and this book certainly gives you plenty of that. The photography is superb and from a design point of view it conjures up hundreds of ideas for my fashion design work. There are very few words in this book and as such relies heavily on the visual elements of the tribal decoration, therefore, if you are after a book which offers explanations of each picture, this is not the one for you. Having said that I really don't think this book needs words with photographs of such high standard, It is a stunning book and anyone buying it should love it because of it's simplicity and artistic eye. I highly recommend getting this book if you are any kind of designer or artist. This book does not give a true understanding of the tribes it has photographed, in fact in some instances you do feel that the photographer has stylized his subjects purely for art, but I don't care. I love this book.
