by Dubin, Lois Sherr
About This Book
Beads have been made in every region of the world and in every historic culture. The range of their diversity, beauty and purposes is immense.
This softback concise edition of the near-definitive 1987 study of the world's beads overviews 30,000 years of bead history. Accounts are given of the styles and usages of beads (for ritual, adornment, as badges of rank, stores of wealth and other purposes) in the world's regions and civilisations. Hundreds of beads are illustrated in colour and the text is complemented by a fold-out bead chart with timeline, a shape table, glossary, bibliography and index.
