Introducing Lévi-Strauss: A Graphic Guide
Accessibly written by Boris Wiseman and beautifully illustrated by Judy Groves, Introducing Lévi-Strauss also explores the major contribution that Claude Lévi-Strauss made to contemporary aesthetic history. His work on American Indian mythology provides a key insight into the way in which art itself comes into being.
