Comments about Faces of Africa - Collector's Series Edition:
This is a small photography book, but the smallness really works with the photos. They are just gorgeous. Art in themselves while depicting fascinating images of Africans in dance and culture, clothing and make up. The colors are perfect. This book makes a lovely coffee table book or gift as well as a source or inspiration for both photographers and artists.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
