A new book describing the various forms which the artistic impulse has taken among primitive peoples, from the stone-age men who roamed the plains of Europe twenty thousand years ago, to the modern negro inventing new ways of carving the human figure among the forests of the Ivory Coast. Written by an anthropologist, who is himself an artist, and illustrated with thirty-two pages of photographs and numerous drawings in the text.
