African Rock Art
David Coulson
Alec Campbell
"It was like entering an obscure art gallery and stumbling across a Renoir." That was how British photographer David Coulson described for People magazine his wonder and astonishment upon first gazing at a prehistoric engraving of two majestic 20-foot-tall giraffes carved into stone in Niger's Aïr Mountains-among the largest such engravings ever found. Readers will share his awe in the pages of this breathtaking volume, the first comprehensive illustrated book on Africa's rock art from prehistoric times to the 20th century. Covering the entire continent, this magnificently illustrated book contains more than 200 full-color photographs of Africa's rock art, together with historical and interpretive analysis. Coulson and former museum director Alec Campbell scoured the remotest areas of Africa in their efforts to preserve a record of these extraordinary works, which remain endangered by erosion and vandalism.
