Hard cover, Plain Boards with Color Photographic DJ, 14" x 105", 304 pages, 457 illustrations, 414 of which are in full color, 5 maps, Bibliography, Index. Published by Harry N. Abrams, Inc. New York, 1984.

At the time of writing, mine is the 12th consecutive 5-Star review, and this is certainly no coincidence. This book can be considered as one of the best photographic representations of "fully decorated" Tribal Africa ever published. Peoples of the entire continent of Africa are featured, and although nobody would claim that the book depicts "everyday" or "typical" Africa or Africans, it certainly does a fabulous job of presenting "Africa Adorned".

This is tribal, ethnic and national African body decoration at its most striking, enigmatic, personal and proud. This is the Body As Art, and the Peoples Of Africa reveling in their history and tradition. The contents are : East Africa - The Body As Art; Equatoria - Treasures and Trade ; Old Africa - Pockets Of Ancient Tradition ; The Savannah - Dictates Of The Desert ; The Maghreb - A Natural Flamboyance ; The Horn - Links With The East.

The book also contains fantastic field photos, as well as "characteristic" native "models", and artifact photographs. The book also boasts a well-researched and informative text, and has a superior presentation throughout. This book is highly recommended, not just for lovers of Africa, and for enthusiasts of Ethnographic books in general, but also for anybody who appreciates African Tribal Art. Since it has been long OOP, the book occasionally gets a little expensive, but if you are patient, there are enough copies out there so that a decent copy will turn up at under 50 bucks sooner or later. GOOD LUCK !

Also worth looking out for in one or two volume editions African Ceremonies: The Concise Edition or Passages: Photographs in Africa

Im not sure what all the fuss is about. This is a lovely book but the print quality is really dated. There are many other lovely photo
books of high quality...these pix are worthy of modern printing technology, and I hope the book is reprinted. But I am returning this version.

I'm a bead maker and jewelry designer and have checked "Africa Adorned" out of my local public library many times. When I saw it was available on Amazon I had to purchase it. I believe that it is now out of print and the >$50 price tag was worth every penny. The book covers not only jewelry but sculpture, home construction and painting, and many other subjects all of which are revealing to anyone interested in the fashion and way of life in Africa. The book was sold by Friends of the Seattle Public Library - Seattle is my hometown - which made my purchase even more meaningful.

If you even run across this book buy it!

Wow! So beautiful. Lots of ideas for color and combination in my own adornment. Look at it again and again.

Probably one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen!

"Africa Adorned" has striking photographs of beautiful African women in skin tones ranging from golden-brown, honey, copper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ebony, wearing the most exquisite, elegant, handmade jewelry. The artisans intricate jewelry work is exceptional. I particularly loved the amazonite, which I had never seen before. Great coffee table book.

A very beautiful Book illustrating the artistic jewelry worn by the lovely women (and men) in Africa.
I have owned a copy for years and it's given me much joy. This copy I bought for a birthday gift for a friend of min
and she too is enamored by it ... keeps it on a coffee table so that all her guests too can enjoy its beauty.
This is an incredible book and anyone interested in African jewelry should absolutely pick it up! Fantastic photos and text, so glad it's available again!
