ARMENIAN FOLK ARTS, CULTURE, AND IDENTITY
Edited by Levon Abrahamian and Nancy Sweezy, Photography editor Sam Sweezy
A rich exploration of the history of Armenian culture as seen through arts and artifacts. "... a historical and anthropological approach in their examination of Armenian architecture, costume, festivals, and artifacts (including carpets, sculpture, funeral arts, articles of clothing, and jewelry). Edited by an anthropologist and an art historian, respectively, this thorough treatment of Armenian folk arts is based on a variety of sources, ranging from ancient and medieval inscriptions to modern travel narratives, and is generously illustrated with more than 60 color and 200 black-and-white photographs, many offering a glimpse of the rich collections at the State Museum of Folk Art of Armenia."
