Browns, Golds and Black

YSL's Art Collection

Shoowa Design: African Textiles from the Kingdom of Kuba. Georges Meurant. London, 1986. 205 pages, 102 large color plates and over 800 black and white drawings and illustrations. This very large volume features beautiful plates of Kuba raffia cloth embroideries from the Congo--most from private collections. Unfortunately, it is difficult to find copies of this out-of-print book.
