I have to hold myself back from buying everything in the Tumbao catalogue. Net Sublette, an excellent source, recommends them.

Such fiscal reticence didn’t stop me from immediately snapping up this, though. Recommended in today’s Guardian Guide, Kanaval: Vodou, Politics & Revolution on the Streets of Haiti has some truly amazing photos of unadulterated Carnival costumery. All the photos were taken in the city of Jacmel, destroyed in the recent earthquake.
