Indian Clubs

by Alice Hoffman

This beautiful oversize book is published by Abrams, a renowned art book publisher. It traces the Indian Club from its inception in India to its fashionable status in Victorian England, to its ensuing vogue in America, where from the 1860's to 1930, choreographed club swinging was both an exercise mania and a competitive sport. Period posters, advertisements, diagrams, and photographs document the sport of club swinging in its heyday. Superb color photographs showcase the extraordinary clubs and decorative detail-inlaid wood, tin and brass appliques, and painted designs. The author is an avid collector of Indian clubs and other folk art.

64 pp. 10.5 x 14.75. Paper.
