"The Illustrated Woman" Hardcover Book by William Demichele 1993

About the Item

A spectacular 139 page (10.5” x 13") book of superb color portraits of women and their tattoos by DeMichele printed by Palace Press in Singapore. A unique book giving us a sight of some remarkable art rendered on a tough medium without, however, an insight into the lives, motivations, thinking of the decorated women pictured. Tattoos range from (few) paint-by-numbers cliches to (mostly) very imaginative, dramatic, even aesthetic work. It will not languish uncirculated in any library. Tattoo

English Paperback ? : ? 195 pages Item weight ? : ? 3 pounds Dimensions ? : ? 9.5 x 0.5 x 12.5 inches To honor the United Nations' Year of Indigenous People, Sierra Club issues a disturbing but ultimately inspiring account of the plight of native peoples and their desperate efforts to halt the forced march toward oblivion.
