This, out of print book is a must have for those studying or re-creating Northwest Indian art. Northwest Coast Indian Graphics is the first book to show the range of individual and regional styles and subject matter of the comtemporary artists. It begins with a description of the culture and the arts of the traditional Northwest Coast peoples, showing how the carved or painted ceremonial objest were related to the religious beliefs and the economy of the coastal societies. The differences between the distinctive tribal styles and the main distinguishing features of each are fully explained. It then traces the development of contemporary Northwest Coast two-dimensional art from these origins, and the current renaissance in ceremonialism and art. Silk screen designs are seen as representing the vangard of contemporary Northwest Coast Indian art. Over 100 colored and black and white examples of the art are included in this exceptional volume.

The topics are as follows:

  • The Tribal Cultures
  • The Traditional Art
  • Post-Contact Cultures
  • The Compemporary Art
  • The History of Northwest Coast Prints
  • Continuity and Change
  • Appendix 1: The Printing of a Northwest Coast Indian Serigraph
