Synopsis: Discusses a wide range of folk art created by ethnic groups from around the world, examines the original use and significance of such articles, and offers ideas for using folk art in home decoration

From Publishers Weekly: In the current intellectual climate, where "political correctness" occupies an exalted position, the title of this stylish picture book could be considered a misnomer. For the featured art is hardly amateurish; it actually encompasses pre-Columbian examples from Mexico and Native America, as well as art from Papua New Guinea, West Africa, Indonesia and India. However, Barnard's ( Living with Kilims ) attitude, while a tad ingenuous, is filled with awe, and his enthusiasm for the subject is obvious. With Merrell he introduces the reader to a broad spectrum of work through a panoply of interior shots, each revealing how a homeowner has incorporated his or her collection of Moroccan rugs, Indonesian baskets, Veracruz figures and more into a domestic environment. To complement the photographs, Barnard provides relevant background information ranging from facts about floor rugs to the significance of regional sources. A charming and colorful Baedeker, this book serves as an intriguing introduction to a category of collecting just now gaining the recognition it so deserves.
