Faces of Africa
Carol Beckwith, Angela FisherISBN: 079226830X;
Faces of Africa is for everyone who loved African Ceremonies, but longs for more of Beckwith and Fisher's unique eye on Africa and the faces of its beautiful inhabitants. Structured by theme, the book looks at portraits of people who are painted, beaded, draped in beautiful cloth, veiled, and most impressively, ready for marriage. Drawn from every part of the massive African continent, the portraits bridge the distance between very remote tribes to nomads to Islamic Africans. Whether decorated with colored beads or lavish gold, the beauty of Africans shines through in these intimate and rare portraits.
