    Form and Splendor: Personal Adornment of the Northern Luzon Ethnic Groups, Philippines

    Roberto Maramba

    Winner, National Book Award, Art, 1998
    Photography by Masato Yokohama
    Form and Splendor, a large-format coffee-table book with 260 full-color pages on heavy, glossy stock, tells readers about the aura of ornaments that are distinctly Asian in their simplicity, directness of design, integrity of materials and talismanic, fetishistic power. Seven years in the making, this should be the definitive book on Cordillera ornament to date.
