This book is the best book available on Guatemalan naif art. The idea was formed to publish a book of Guatemalan artists "with the purpose of promoting the rescue and conservation of one of Guatemala's most original features interwoven in our society's distinct character" (quote from the Preliminary Note of the bilingual edition). Featured are paintings by 80 different Maya artists from Comalapa, Patzicia, and the towns around Lake Atitlan. Accompanying text describes the history and development of the art form. This book is a MUST OWN for collectors of Guatemalan naive art. It is a NEW book purchased in Guatemala. There may be some slight rubbing to the cover from transportation and storage. This is the Bilingual Edition in English and Spanish. It contains all the artists and paintings pictured in the original edition, with a slightly abbreviated and updated text.

Publisher: UNESCO and Fundacion Paiz, Guatemala City, 2001

Number of pages: 203
