Format: Paperback
This is one of my favorites in the fine Dover Pictorial Archives series. As in almost all of these books, this is a selection of illustrations from out-of-copyright archaeological reports, in this case by Dr. Lothrop, who studied the Cocle' culture for Harvard's Peabody Museum from 1930 to 1933.

If you are reading this, you are likely a fan of prehistoric pottery, and familiar with the frustrations of skimming old, dull archaeological reports to get to the Good Parts -- the photos/drawings of all the cool stuff they dug up. Dover has conveniently done this for you, and reprinted these images on good-quality paper, at a reasonable price, and kept the book in print for decades (this book was first published in 1976). Good old Dover!

The only real drawback to this (and similar) books is that the images are all black and white, a definite loss for these colorful pots. So I've uploaded a sample Cocle' pot in color to the customer images file here. Nice one, isn't it? -- if a little creepy.

If you're intrigued with Cocle' designs, you'll also want to have a look at Armand Labbe's Guardians of the Life Stream: Shamans, Art and Power in Prehispanic Central Panama, which has many nice color photos of these neat pots -- and which I should also review sometime....

Happy reading--
Peter D. Tillman

This is the my second copy, I wanted two, just in case one gets borrowed and never returned. This is a wonderful pictorial of many of the designs I grew up with. We just love this book.
