1st edition (limited run). Corn dollies were made in ancient times at the end of the harvest to house the gods whom the farmers believed controlled the elements. Though belief in the gods faded, the craft of making Corn Dollies survived as a means of decorating the peasants' homes or person. Today the craft is enjoying a revival. Dianne Downie has studied the craft in Australia and America, and this book contains many diagrams and photographs of traditional corn dollies. This is the first Australian edition.
