Body Art

Publisher:  Blake House Studios
Year Published:  1990  
Resource Type:  Book

Abstract:  A well-illustrated magazine whose focus is the human body and decorations. Articles deal both with western cultures and with so-called primitive societies, societies which, according to articles in Body Art, are often ahead of our own in being in touch with their own bodies. The latest issue (#9) features one article on the concept of "The Perfect Body", going back to Roman and medieval writers who had very precise ideas of what the "correct" proportions of a human body ought to be, to modern attempts to achieve whatever is perceived as the perfect body by the culture of the times. Interesting reading, with high-quality artwork and a personal tone.
