Ethiopian Academy Press has published a book by Dr. Dorothea McEwan entitled: Ethiopia Illustrated: Sacred Paintings, Maps and Drawings. An Anthology. The book is an anthology of seven articles grouped in two parts—the first analyzing sacred paintings produced by Ethiopian artists, and the second discussing the life and works of botanist Georg Wilhelm Schimper’s draughtsman Eduard Zander. Each chapter is richly illustrated, presenting paintings alongside commentaries on their religious, social, and historical contexts.
The book is available in printed format at local book stores.
