This book is the English language version of a catalogue published by Africa Magna Verlag in 2013 under the title Nok: Ein Ursprung afrikanischer Skulptur. That publication was designed to accompany an exhibition of the same name on show in Frankfurt from 30 October 2013 to 23 February 2014. As stated on the title page, the exhibition highlighted the results achieved so far in a joint research programme conducted by the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt and the Nigerian National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM). The programme, which started in 2005, is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. There are 25 chapters in the English language edition, with contributions by 20 different authors, so obviously this is a team work, edited by Peter Breunig, who is the overall director of the project.
