A DIGEST-SIZED SUMMARY OF THE ART AND THE HISTORY BEHIND IT


"An indispensable primer to an enduring tradition, a premier title in the new Shire America series."

                                                                         — Publisher's statement


"Carol and Allan Hayes de-mystify what can be a somewhat mystical art form—a level-headed, no-nonsense book."

                                                                           — Alice Kaufman, Executive Director, Antique Tribal Arts Dealer's Association


Shire Publications of Oxford, England has published hundreds of titles with subject matter directed to collectors, mostly in this small format. Their world succeess prompted them to launch a new series specifically directed to the U.S., and we were proud to be asked to be part of the initial offering. We managed to compress the history of the art into a package that includes maps, a six-page 1,600-year timeline and color photos of nearly 500 pieces, many never published before. Even if you're fully familiar with our other books, you'll find surprises in this one .
