The present dictionary represents a collection of today’s common craft terminologies of the Hausa in Northern Nigeria. It contains terms for craft products, materials and manufacturing processes that were collected by the authors during 1989 and 1994 in rural areas of the Hausa provinces of Bauchi, Daura, Guddiri, Hadeja, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara and Zaria. The entries are illustrated by numerous sketches, drawings and photos by A.T. Sati.
