New book:

Art from AfricaArt from Africa : Long Steps Never Broke a Back

By Pamela McClusky, Robert Farris Thompson
304 pages, published April 2002.

Excerpt from the Amazon review:

"This strikingly unusual and beautifully illustrated book represents a turning point in African art history. The authors draw on personal memories, interviews, and oral narratives to present twelve "case histories" of objects--or clusters of objects--in the Seattle Art Museum's renowned collection of African art. Each case history is enriched by comments from artists, art historians, writers, community members, and patrons who guide readers back into the markets, palaces, ceremonies, shrines, and streets where African art originated. "
