Description
With multiple color photographs on virtually every page, this is an outstanding visual reference for the world's most notable decorative craft traditions. It catalogs and describes such diverse crafts as Berber flatweaves, North African amulets, Tibetan tiger rugs, Japanese kojeshi dolls, Aborigine microlith tools, Maori fish hooks, North American carved gourds, Amazonian pottery, Hungarian painted eggs, Venetian glass beads, German and French tin-glazed ceramics, Pacific totem poles, and New England Shaker boxes. It also explains the techniques used in a particular craft, including Andean backstrap weaving, Polish paper cutting, Hausa embroidery, and wood carving in the Hindu Kush.

"Surveys almost every conceivable type of craft.... If your heart is lost to folk art and indigenous crafts, this is the volume for you."American Style
