Cat socializing for the best and the worst :-)
will sure do, can't wait to receive it! Thanx again
Being myself in its cruel claws I recognize ADDICTION when I see it! Am often finishing the month considering eating my cats biscuits!
Please give us your opinion when you've received it.
I have ordered a copy, always excited to get an eye on a private collection.
OH, i am sure in a less financial ease than before the trip, but how on earth can i manage to escape the bug if it materialize in yet another piece of my passion, be it a book or a jewel.....sacrifices, sacrifices!!
By the way its 31 Eur., not pounds. I tried to give you much more info but the blog blocked me after 140 signs..You can always wait until it gets cheaper to Amazon.You must be "dry" after your trip to Indonesia!
Yes I have and in my opinion its worth it. 47pages on the history of Berber jewelry and its influences. Makilam is a specialist of magic and symbols of Berber women. Ethnologist and historian. Born and bred in a Kabyle village. Look at her site (www.makilam.com).Splendid photos.I am not in a position to detect mistakes if any but you would!
Do you already have a copy of this book Chantal. i would love to have your feedback to decide if it is worth buying.
Most of the times, the private collection books are very interesting be it for the only fact that they are less scholar and sometimes do have some very rare undocumented pieces
Another one that I found very interesting (published 2015) by Makilam (www.makilam.com) about the wonderful Urszula Zanetti collection. Urszula lived 30 years in Algeria .The book is in German and French. About £31 from the publisher. Also interesting books from Makilam on Amazon.fr on magie and symbolism amongst Berber women.
There is indeed a great need to have serious reference books on North African jewels written in English, BUT the author has constructed it in a way that you can easily grab the important info...you can of course use an online translator...The pictures are indeed fantastic and RABATE has had the very great opportunity to access the THAU collection before it was sold recently (outstanding pieces of great quality and rarity) also she could access to the wonderful French and moroccan database picture collection....i was told that you can no more do so!
I have the reprint. It's fantastic and a bargain, and must be truly wonderful for those who read French. :)
Thanx Chantal for the Update, this book is indeed is a must have and i dare to say that the author knows very much her "stuff"!
