Alaska Native Art by Susan W. Fair
Book DescriptionRanging from the islands of the Bering Sea to Alaska's interior forests, "Alaska Native Art" celebrates the rich art of Alaska's Native peoples, both setting their work in the context of historical traditions and demonstrating the vibrant role it continues to play in contemporary Alaskan culture. "Alaska Native Art" showcases a staggering array of types of art - from beadwork to ivory carving, basketry to skin sewing - from Aleutian Islander, Pacific Eskimo, Tlingit, Athabaskan, Yup'ik, and Inupiaq artists, as well as full-color photographs of artists at work. Lavishly produced, and featuring a fascinating study by author Susan W. Fair of the concept of tradition in the modern world, it is a tribute to the incredible vision of Alaska's Native artists.
