Synopsis: In Africa, beaded ornaments may mark an individual's progress through life, and intricate woven fabrics chronicle the deeds of warriors and kings. "African Elegance" delves into the ways in which such traditional objects as masks, jewelry, and wooden vessels are used in contemporary African society.

From the vibrant, carved coffins of Ghana and the treasures made by sixteenth-century Benin metalsmiths to the sleek objects in serpentine crafted by the Shona sculptors of Zimbabwe, "African Elegancce" dynamically explores how native Africans display themselves, exchange messages, and tell stories through craft. An object as beautiful as the work it celebrates, "African Elegance" is a stunningly photographed chronicle of art and personal adornment.

About the Author: Ettagale Blauer has been writing about crafts and Africa in equal measure for more than twenty years. She has travelled widely in Africa, and has lived in South Africa and Kenya. A native New Yorker, Ettagale received her B.A. from Hunter College, New York. Her numerous publications include a series of books on African nations for Grolier Publishing, as well as South Africa, Coming of Age under Apartheid. She also writes about all aspects of jewelry design - antique, modern and tribal - as well as diamonds and gold, and is the author of Contemporary American Jewelry Design and American Wristwatches: Five Decades of Style and Design. She lives in New York.
