About This Item

Vancouver, B. C.: Douglas & Mcintyre. Very Good. 1988. First Edition. Softcover. 0888946252 . Ex-library book, but still in quite good condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Page are clean and tight, profusely illustrated in b/w and colour. Light edgewear and some rough edges to laminate on covers, a little soiling to outer edge of pages. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 288 pages; From Publishers Weekly: Contemporary American Indian arts and crafts are sometimes dismissed as a pale reflection of a once-great art form. Coe, who spent eight years crisscrossing North America, meeting Indian artists and collecting their works, disproves this viewpoint. A rich legacy of tribal tradition lives on in modern textiles, masks, carvings, jewelry and sacred objects, as revealed in the 400 artworks reproduced in this catalogue of a touring exhibition. When a Makah Indian in Washington State carves a painted box in the shape of a wolf's head, he rediscovers an age-old form and, in so doing, experiences a sense of pride and shared values. Visiting scores of tribes, Coe discovered an art community, a loose network of weavers, craft classes, singers, carvers. Examples in this revelatory volume range from a Pueblo dance-skirt decorated with mystical life symbols to a Cheyenne bird-feather fan whose iridescent colors mirror the peyote ceremony....
