Africa: Misteri & Conchiglie
by Tiziano Cossignani

2005, Museo Malacologico Piceno, Cupra Marittima, Italy, laminated board covers , sewn binding, 160 pages, color photos throughout, page size is 8.25 by 11.5 inches (21 by 30cm)

This book is in many respects a companion to the author's earlier work "Conchiglie, Maschere e Misteri", but this time all of the masks and artifacts shown are from Africa while in the earlier book they cam e for the greater part from Papua-New Guinea. To simply say that the objects presented in this book are superb does not really do them justice. These are some of the most fantastic and top quality objects of African tribal art I've seen assembled in a single book. And as in the other works in this series the photography and printing present these objects to us with great clarity. Apart from a one page introduction (in Italian) the book is a photographic catalog of man's use of shells in art and in personal ornamentation and in ritual and in magic.
