Folk art traditions in Haiti today rise to the level of fine art in the beaded flags shown here. They demonstrate a joyful expression of living with the spirits, as the flagmakers express their individual artistic spark. Over 350 color photographs present hundreds of unique designs by dozens of contemporary artists. But this is not just a pretty book; it also explores the spiritual beliefs at the core of the designs and a folk lore expressed in this most unique format.

A little history of Haiti and a little explanation of the Vodou religion helps to explain the people who create these flags. By relating personal stories, the author soon absorbs readers into the rich and devout culture that the flags represent. As the beautiful designs and exquisite craftsmanship flow across these pages, explanations are given to define the saints and relate the stories that are featured in the images. It is a powerful presentation. The glossary and recommended reading invite further study.
