2 Duncan, David Douglas [editor] Magic Worlds of Fantasy
New York Harcourt Brace Jovanovich 1978 First Edition, 2nd Printing Hardcover Fine Fine Book 
The work of four "fantasy hobbyists" (really)-Dorle Lindner, Dr. Oscar Forel, Hsueh Shao-Tang, and Ariane-that caught DDD's eye over the years. Oh, and he has thrown in an eight-page supplement he calls "Souvenirs of a Magic World" that consists of stuff Picasso gave him out of friendship. In my mind, borders on a flimsy rationale for a whole book, but the work of the hobbyists, probably folk artists, is interesting. Text in English. Fine hardcover binding in Fine dust jacket.

Washington DC Smithsonian Institution 1997 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 
Gorgeous, 182-page, full-color (oh, all right) coffee table book, but because it's the Smithsonian, because the photography is so extraordinary and the color so true, the folk arts of Thailand are presented in sufficient detail for serious study, and the documentation is in fact scholarly. So, no lightweight. Fine hardcover binding in Fine dust jacket.
