From the Preface: “Over the years, Paulus Gerdes has established himself as the pre-eminent expert on patterns in African weaving and basketry, and the broader implications of these patterns. … This new book is a broad gallery of plaited African designs. These range over much of the continent while concentrating on those parts of Africa that are closest to his Mozambique center, including Kongo, Mbole and Mangbetu from Congo, Cokwe and Lunda from Angola, Digo from Kenya, Soga from Uganda, Zulu from South Africa, and Makhuwa in Mozambique itself, but including such distant peoples as Bamileke in Cameroon. In Gerdes’ gallery we are shown the love of patterns and symmetries that are the result of centuries of exultant exploration. Enjoy!” Donald W. Crowe Professor of Mathematics, Emeritus University of Wisconsin (220 pp.)
