Ost-Tirol, Land-Volk-Kunst, by Franz Kollreider. 46 pages of trilingual text and 120 full-page photographs by Jahn-Dietrichstein. Innsbruck: Der Tiroler Graphik, 1951. Price, $2.50.

This is the first book dealing exclusively with the country, people, and art of East Tyrol. The text covers this concisely, while the illustrations depict the mountain uplift of the Venediger and Glockner areas, with particular emphasis on the happenings below the snowline. There are exhibits from the museum of peasant art at Leinz, as well as examples of the work of two contemporary artists: Franz v. Defregger and Albin Egger-Lienz.
