Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Encompassing more than one thousand individually priced items from around the world, a comprehensive overview of art from a broad spectrum of tribes and cultural groups includes historical, cultural, spiritual and ritual, and price information on works from Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, along with maps that pinpoint tribal locations.

Book News Annotation:

This guide to tribal art is aimed at collectors and contains many color photos, price guides, and tips on what characteristics to look for when buying and selling. Organized by geographic area in Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, the book provides an overview of each culture and its history, maps of tribal areas, lists of key tribes, and profiles of art-producing countries. Each chapter shows many items, such as masks, figures, fertility dolls, drums, and bowls from auction houses (referenced at the end of the book), with descriptions and prices. There is no bibliography. Miller contributes to many magazines and has written many books on antiques and interiors. Philip Keith and Jim Haas, associated with an auctioneers company, also contributed to the volume. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
