Spruce-Root Basketry of the Haida and Tlingit Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The skillful photography of Ron Reeder presents a visual history of spruce-root basketry from the 1850s to the present. He captures the lustrous patina of the old baskets made for traditional Native uses as well as the impressive variety of baskets made for sale in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Photographs also portrays the baskets made today for sale in Northwest Coast art galleries by weavers who are a living part of a long tradition. Historical photographs enhance the account of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and provide a visual counterpoint to the vibrant color images of the baskets today. Drawings by Margaret Davidson explain the complex weaving techniques used in these baskets for millennia. The combination of compelling images and informative text makes this book a welcome addition to the literature of basketry and Northwest Coast art for students, collectors, and admirers of this art form.

Book News Annotation:

This attractive volume (co-published with Marquand Books in Seattle) is filled with luscious color photographs by Ron Reeder of the superb baskets in Busby's collection and many b&w plates of historic photos of early collections and the basket makers at work or seated along docks selling their wares. Busby, a collector, has written an informative text on the history and techniques of spruce root basket production, their use in Native contexts and for sale to non-native collectors.
