AFRICA ADORNED, by Angela Fisher, published by Willian Collins and Co.
  Ltd., ISBN 0 00 216622 4
    Reviewed by Shannon Larratt <glider54@pobox.com>:
  "Africa Adorned is one of those large coffee-table style photo books 
  whose subject just happens to be the jewelry worn by the tribal
peoples 
  of the African continent (although it does stray into related
subjects 
  like bodysculpting and scarification). Almost all of the photos are
very 
  high quality modern photos, with a few, much older, photos thrown in
for 
  historical illustration. A great cross section of cultures are 
  illustrating, making some very interesting points as the practises of 
  nomadic cultures are compared with richer farming societies. The only 
  complaint I can make about this book is that the commentary should be 
  taken with a grain of salt, as it's cultural bias is quite apparent, 
  with some of the arts being referred to as "barbaric" or "primitive." 
  However, overall I must say that anybody that buys this book will
most 
  certainly be happy with it - it is a very attractive addition to any 
  collection."
