Festival Folk: An Atlas of Carnival Customs and Costumes Hardcover Book Festival Folk: An Atlas of Carnival Customs and Costumes Hardcover Book

Clearly a labor of love, this vibrant compendium of bizarre and colorful festivals from around the world is a visual feast. -- YS Book Review 40 unusual world festivals and their accompanying costumes are brought to life in this stunning book for people of all ages to enjoy. All around the world there are festivals that reach back through the sands of time to medieval carnival traditions, and beyond. The festivals in this book are often little known outside their locale and they are all characterised by spectacular costumes and compellingly bizarre rituals. The Jarramplas of Piornal, Spain is a spooky devil character dressed in rags, who is pelted by two tons of turnips every year. In Japan, the Kasedori wear a suit of straw and run barefoot through the snow as villagers douse them in freezing water to protect their houses from fire. The Courir de Mardi Gras is a lesser known cousin of the New Orleans carnival, in which members of rural Louisiana communities dress in Medieval French jester costumes and chase down chickens thrown from the roofs of local farmsteads.
