Books Info:

Ethnic Jewellery and Adornment free pdf Dr Philip Jones, a Senior Curator at the South Australian Museum, has commented on this extraordinary publication as follows: the Daalders have brought together in this book an important selection of objects of ethnic adornment, notable not only for the rare and beautiful pieces it contains but also for the opportunity it provides to range across many of the worlds cultural traditions through one particular aesthetic mode, that of the adorned and decorated body. Aboriginal adornment has been seldom examined in the literature. This book will enable these objects to be regarded within an international context.

About Truus Daalder

Truus Daalder grew up in the Dutch village of Bergen, which is known for the achievements of its painters. Already as a child she developed a keen interest in artistic works and a passion for gaining an understanding of them. In 1966 she and her husband Joost, who fully shared her devotion to the visual arts, went to live in New Zealand, where the couple soon became serious collectors. Their experiences prompted Truus to write the bestseller Hunting Antiques in New Zealand, which was enthusiastically acclaimed. After moving to Adelaide, Australia, in 1976, the Daalders increasingly found themselves fascinated by objects from non-European cultures, especially in the area of jewellery and adornment. Their enthusiasm and persistence led them to acquire an exceptionally impressive collection in this field. Truus's determined effort to learn as much as she could about the objects shown in this volume - including those from the South Australian Museum - has extended over many years, and has culminated in the writing of this book. Truus can be contacted through www. ethnicartpress.com.au Jeremy Daalder, the son of Truus and Joost Daalder, is a photographer and printmaker living in Melbourne, Australia. Jeremy runs Image Science, a business specialising in education, products, and services for fine art image makers.
