100 African Blades from 55 Collections (Volume 1)

This deluxe volume presents a selection of 100 traditional African blades that are not only functional but also works of art. Recognized for their rarity and remarkable craftsmanship but chosen strictly for their beauty, each blade—whether a throwing knife, a short sword, a currency object, an axe, or an adze—is presented individually, so that it can be appreciated as a stand-alone masterwork for its flowing form and subtle details. The 55 collections from which these remarkable works are drawn include museums, private holdings, and those of art dealers. Many have never before been seen by the public, much less published.
