A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The Spirit of African Design is an illustrated home-living guide to African-inspired style, with gorgeous photographs, fascinating cultural and historical information, and plenty of ideas and resources for interpreting styles, from Marrakesh to Capetown. Explore the treasures of the past and revel in the exciting work of today's young designers. 250 full-color photographs.

Review:

Spirit of African Design is as richly vibrant as the masks, nail fetishes, Senufo beds and portraiture that graces its pages.... The authors infuse the spirit of the continent into every area of the home... -- Quarterly Black Review, Judy Willis

Two design experts share their knowledge of and enthusiasm for African design and style, presenting African motifs as displayed in contemporary home settings. As most titles on African design focus on either museum holdings or native settings, this makes for a different approach to African design which teaches a new perspective, standing apart from the myriad of African art and contemporary design standards. -- Midwest Book Review

Description de la librairie

Located in the heart of historic downtown Springfield, Prairie Archives has been serving Central Illinois since 1973. We have occupied three locations since our founding and our current store has been located at 522 E. Adams since 1992. We have approximately 250,000 books in stock, documents, manuscript material, posters, prints, comics, collectibles, magazines, political buttons, postcards and lots more! If you don't see a title you're looking for, please feel free to inquire; only a small part of our stock is catalogued. Our store hours are 10-5 Central time Monday through Saturday. We also carry a line of t-shirts, including the ever-popular "Abraham Lincoln: They'd have to shoot me to get me back to Springfield" and "Frank Lloyd Wright: I can design a building that would look good even in Springfield". Please inquire about our other designs, sizes and prices. And of course, we can't leave without mentioning Hannah, our golden retriever. She has run things here since she was a puppy [October, 1994]; she brings more business to the shop than anyone else. Always friendly, cheerful, and affectionate (especially when someone has food!) She has recently been joined by Ruby, a young and energetic black lab. Hannah and Ruby say "Come See Us!"
