Native American Basketry

Posted on June 05, 2014 | | Leave A Comment

Antique Native American Basketry of Western North America: A Comprehensive Guide to Identification provides historic and artistic insight into the traditions and techniques of Native American basketry. Written by collector Alan Blaugrund and scholar John Kania, the book was created for Native basketry enthusiasts. It blends the work of anthropologists with the experience and research of the authors and provides a systematic approach to identifying basket types and materials.

Produced by Marquand Books and designed by Ryan Polich, Antique Native American Basketry of Western North America focuses on basketry “made for sale” between 1890 and 1930. The 312-page book features more than 180 full-color illustrations. Essays by Kania and Blaugrund illuminate the regional and cultural influences belonging to the various baskets. Photographs by Anthony Richardson celebrate the stunning artistry of these objects.

I just saw this the book. I could not be more thrilled with the quality of the design, photographic reproductions, and, of course, with the well-researched text.  Of the many books that I’ve worked on, this one is easily one of the best.  Aside from the beauty of the baskets themselves, the story behind each style is fascinating. Once “the word is out” this book will become the primary reference source on this fascinating subject.  This is a magnificent work by two superb and knowledgeable authors.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
But imagine if you added some great graphics or
videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably
be one of the best in its niche. Awesome blog!

They know the merchandise by the reputation of the product.
There are a number of people who do the majority of their Christmas
shopping online. A customer over-heard the employees
talking about the cuts, and got so offended that she decided
to return everything she just purchased, and
left the store.
