Saffron African Art and Society Series
Saffron Books African Art and Society Series [ISSN 1740-3111 | Series Editors John Picton, Sajid Rizvi] is a multidisciplinary series of books and monographs that aims to bring together new writing examining both the art and the social scene in Africa as well as art amidst African communities outside the continent. The series was launched with the publication in 1997 of Art Criticism and Africa [Katy Deepwell, ed].
The series does not encompass Caribbean art and societies, though texts included in the series do tend to touch upon issues concerning Caribbean and other peoples of African descent from various diasporas in the West.
