McFarland & Company, 2010, 0786443995 / 9780786443994 Ex Library Hard Cover Very Good Pictorial Boards 
Ex-library book with the usual stamps, stickers, etc. Binding is solid and text/interior is clean and free of marking of any kind. Book shows little to no wear and is in excellent condition. 236 pages with b&w and color illustrations. Profiling 30 mask makers from around the world, this book explores the motivations and challenges of contemporary artists working to bring the traditional methods and conventions of mask making to an evolving global theatre. There are 181 photographs--including two sections of color plates--of mask makers and their works illustrate how the mythic iconography of masks is used in the modern fields of dance, mime, theatre, and storytelling. Topics include the ways in which mask artists and performers maintain a sense of universality despite varying local customs; the legacies of Italian mask makers Amleto and Donato Sartori and of the California-based Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre; and the ways in which traditional approaches in mask artistry continue to influence commercial mask performance ventures in film, on Broadway, and in touring companies. 138190
