Afghan Truck Stop


But this is not a book of camels. “Today this tradition has survived in the form of paintings and flowers which festoon the sides of the Afghan truck.” And continues from 1977 to the present, even during wartime conditions.

“The truck,” added Blanc, has even assumed a surrealistic quality. Its decorative motifs introduce a whole new world to the eyes of the villager. A world that is half-real and half-imaginary, yet still inhabited by the flora and fauna of the daily life of the peasant.

This book is long out of print, but available in used editions here.
