Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic work on Navajo weaving as a conceptual art form is back in print. The authors reveal meaningful links between Navajo culture, symbols, landscape and the textile design and materials woven in.

Book News Annotation:

The authors focus on some 70 examples of textiles from the celebrated collection of the Laboratory of Anthropology in Santa Fe, NM, exploring them from the perspective of the weavers themselves and discovering the process and intention that contributed to their creation. Superbly detailed color plates.
