Earth Matters: Land as Material and Metaphor in the Arts of Africa based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I have a Christmas tradition of giving art books to my brother and his wife, both artists. The premise of the earth as a metaphor in African culture seemed promising. When it arrived, I discovered very nice illustrations but a higgledy piggledy conglomeration of themes which didn't match my standard of a coffee table art book. What really made me hide this away, embarrassed to give it, was the poor "printed in China" quality. There is no book jacket and the label is just glued to the hard cover. I am now very suspicious of any book coming from the Monacelli Press. Give this one a pass unless "earth" is a prime component of your blood.
