Review: Africa Adorned

User Review  - Tereneh - Goodreads

This is one of the main go-to books of any designer that I know in any adornment/garment/accessory related genre. One of the most stunning books depicting the human act of everyday art - the very process of dressing the body. A classic. Read full review
