With African dream machines, Anitra Nettleton presents the results of over three decades of examining and thinking about African headrests. The result is a book that moves far from the narrowly focused ethnic-specific studies that have become commonplace in the field of traditional African art studies, suggesting less constricting perspectives as a way to understand and appreciate these individual objects, which have attracted Western attention since at least the nineteenth century.
