This vintage book contains Miguel Covarrubias’s 1937 work, “The Island of Bali”. Comprising a wealth of information on day-to-day life, culture, manners, and religion on the 'Island of the Gods', this volume furnishes an authentic 'bird’s-eye view' of Balinese society. It is highly recommended for those with an interest in the subject. Miguel Covarrubias (1904 - 1957) was a Mexican artist, caricaturist, ethnologist and historian - famed for his illustrations and theatre work.
