Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book examines a range of art forms produced by Indians in northeastern North American for sale to travelers and tourists during the 18th and 19th centuries. Images newly uncovered in archives and travel literature--including depictions of Native vendors and makers--illustrate the book, along with never-before-displayed or published objects from museum collections in Europe and North America. 209 illustrations, 38 in color. Map.

Book News Annotation:

Indians in northeastern North America produced a variety of art objects for sale to travelers and tourists during the 18th and 19th centuries. This art is of high quality and great aesthetic interest, but has been largely ignored by scholars. This study combines fieldwork, art historical analysis, and historical contextualization to compare Native souvenirs to Euro-American decorative arts and home crafts. Includes b&w and color photos of pieces and their makers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
