'Arts and Crafts of Mexico reveals the vigour of Mexican textile designs, perhaps unsurpassed elsewhere in the America; the huge variety of ceramics, from rustic pots to sophisticated maiolica ware; jewelry ranging from horses and alligators of beaten silver to simple necklaces of coloured seeds; charming and ingeniously inventive folk toys; ritual arts produced for celebration at fiestas and for divine protection; and a host of other crafts, including wood carving, basketry and metalwork. A reference section completes the book, providing detailed advice on collecting Mexican folk art, a Glossary, Bibliography and 'Peoples of Mexico' guide.'
