About Us

ETHNOGRAPHIC ARTS PUBLICATIONS, and its website, tribalartbooks.com, the leading and oldest bookseller dedicated exclusively to tribal art publications, was founded in 1977. For many years we have assisted hundreds of collectors, art dealers, universities, and museums in the development and the building of their tribal art reference libraries.

Our inventory consists of out of print, scarce, and rare publications that deal with the arts, material culture, rituals, and ethnography of the tribal peoples of sub-Saharan Africa, Oceania, Southeast and East Asia, the Arctic/Eskimo/Siberian regions, the Northwest Coast, Native American cultures of the United States, and the pre-Columbian and post-Conquest peoples of Latin America.
