About this Item

Quarto. XXIV, 192pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over decorative paper covered boards, with white lettering on spine. As she has in her previous books, "Ndebele: The Art of an African Tribe" and "African Canvas: The Art of West African Women," Margaret Courtney-Clarke turns her sensitive eye on women whose lives have seldom been observed. Her photos explore the remarkable arts and rapidly changing way of life of the Berber women of North Africa. This work is the final volume in a trilogy celebrating the extraordinary traditional arts and crafts of African women. Photographer Courtney-Clarke traveled through the rugged mountains and deserts of North Africa to record the distinctive pottery, fabrics, rugs and other woven products, and murals created by Berber women. Journalist Geraldine Brooks contributes a narrative stressing the harsh lives most Berber women face and their remarkable resilience and love of color and craft. The 230 color photographs have a startling intimacy and vigor, portraying intricate designs on house walls and pottery; complex, serene, sophisticated patterns for rugs and fabrics; and the women themselves, weaving, working at kilns, tending families, or pausing for portraits. Some creasing and a 1 1/4" closed tear along upper fore-edge of dust-jacket. DJ in overall good-, binding and interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 37525
