The charm and humor of Mexican folk art have made it among the most popular in the world, and this lavishly photographed volume will appeal to aficionados of collectible folk art everywhere. Complete with full-color photography of native crafts and vivid portraits of the Mexican people and their lifestyles, The Arts and Crafts of Mexico combines in-depth text and beautiful images into a treasury of myriad indigenous art forms. Among the items covered are brilliant textiles from the country's various regions; a great diversity of ceramics, from rough pots to elegant Majolica ware; fabulous jewelry, ranging from whimsical silver earrings featuring alligators and donkeys, to ornately carved necklaces sparkling with colored beads and precious metals; endearing toys painted in vivid colors; woven goods such as baskets, mats, and bags; intricately crafted metalwork; and special decorations made for celebrations and fiestas. A special section features advice on collecting crafts and includes a glossary, bibliography, and "Peoples of Mexico" chart. Colorful and informative, this is the essential companion for travelers who have visited Mexico and fallen in love with local crafts, potential travelers who are planning a trip to the area, or anyone enthralled by the charm and vibrancy of this unique folk art.
