Book News Annotation:

This volume is spectacular. It presents the work of 52 contemporary artists, in an oversize format (9.5x12.5"), with pages skillfully designed to integrate text and photos. The text consists of commentary about culture and context, brief bios of the artists, and statements from the artists themselves. Gorgeous photos depict their stunning creations. Coverage includes canoes, paddles, weaving, baskets, hats, jewelry, and glass as well as two-dimensional works inspired by cultural interpretations of sky, earth, and water. The Norrises are collectors and aficionados--a husband-wife team--with a deep devotion to the cultural traditions and the contemporary art of the indigenous cultures of the northwest coast of the United States. (They published an earlier book ten years ago, Northwest Carving Traditions). Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
