Hey, just came across this set of flickr photos of Hausa tubali architecture and the building process … well, they’re advertising some kind of film about mud architecture in northern Nigeria as well, a bit to expensive for my taste but check it out if you’re interested. For the moment, here’s the link to the photos and a preview of the video can be found here.

And as I'm at it anyway, just to remind you that a preview of Friedrich Schwerdtfeger's book on wall decoration in Zaria is available via Google Book Search. Check it out, its based upon years of research and a must read for everybody who's interested in Hausa arts and crafts!
