American Indian and Eskimo Basketry: A Key to Identification
This product is currently sold out.
An incredibly preserved and signed 1969 first edition, this identification guide to Indian and Eskimo Basketry is a beautiful kind of encyclopedia of artifacts. Following an introduction to the regions and brief overview of the basketry geography, the majority of the book is a catalogue. The imagery is generous: all facing pages, with multiple photo reproductions matched on the opposite page to a corresponding description, sometimes accompanied by diagrams and extra information. The passion and wealth of knowledge behind the publication of the writers' collections here is so apparent it's humbling, presented with such a thoughtfully researched and composed guide to a field studied with true dedication.
Written & compiled by Charles Miles and Pierre Bovis.
