This series takes an in-depth look at both the decorative and functional art and design of a given culture. The engaging text explains how the art ties in to the culture, what it means, why it was created, and what it's used for or represents. Fine art, architecture, music and theater, cookware, clothing and textiles and other topics are all discussed. Feature boxes highlight fascinating bits of information on a specific topic, such as African embroidery.
