In keeping with my promise to do a book drawing every month, I'm announcing the next book...
The FEBRUARY 2007 book for the drawing is:
"The Art of Collecting African Art"
from the Center for African Art
Introduction by Susan Vogel - Essays by Robert and Nancy Nooter
Paperback: 64 pages. 49 black & white photographs.
Catalogue of an exhibition.
Publisher: Museum for African Art (May 1988)
Featuring objects and stories from the collections of:
John and Nicole Dintendass
Jean and Noble Endicott
George and Gail Feher
Gaston T. deHavenon and Family
Brian and Diane Leyden
Daniel and Marian Malcom
Franklin and Shirley Williams
Susan Vogel makes a wonderful and insightful introduction in the beginning of this book. Robert and Nancy Nooter each share their story in a brief essay about how they started collecting, and what drives their passion for African art. The introduction and the essays alone make the book worth it, but on the
pages following them it showcases the people that were part of the exhibition and it describes how they started collecting and gives examples from their collections that were in the exhibition.
As I have done in the past, I will pay all shipping charges to get the book to the winner no matter where they live in the world.
I will announce the winner of the book on Wednesday February 28th.
