South Seas Designs

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, Jan 1, 2007 - Art - 56 pages
Melanesia, which includes New Guinea and numerous smaller islands on the South Seas, is rich with carved decorative art. Each island has adopted unique styles typical of their own peoples, creating an enormous wealth of diverse designs. This treasury of visually stunning native carvings is filled with authentic patterns that have been carved into wood, gourds, cocoanutshells, and tortoiseshells. From spirals, “teeth,” triangles, and zigzags to recognizably human figures, lizards, crocodiles, and birds, each page is an exciting discovery of exotic design. This book includes a CD-ROM containing 394 royalty-free images — 40 full-color images saved in JPEG format and 354 black & white images scanned at 600 dpi and saved in six different formats (TIFF, PICT, EPS, BMP, as well as Internet-ready JPEG and GIF).
