Form and Splendor: Personal Adornment of the
Northern Luzon Ethnic Groups, Philippines
Winner, National Book Award, Art, 1998
by Masato Yokohama
Form and Splendor, a large-format
coffee-table book with 260 full-color pages on heavy, glossy stock,
tells readers about the aura of ornaments that are distinctly Asian in
their simplicity, directness of design, integrity of materials and
talismanic, fetishistic power. Seven years in the making, this should be
the definitive book on Cordillera ornament to date.
City: Bookmark, 1998
A must own book for every Northern Luzon Artifact Collector.
