From This Earth: The Ancient Art of Pueblo Potteryby Stewart Peckham, J. J. Brody (Foreword by), Mary Peck (Photographer)
This is the only book available on Pueblo Indian pottery that convincingly traces the traditional links in pottery-making over 1800 years. Stewart Peckham illustrates not only that pottery in the Southwest is a vibrant and responsive contemporary art, but that potters of today are perpetuating traditions that extend backward the length of North America's ceramic history. One hundred seventy-one plates from the unparalleled collections of the Museum of New Mexico's Laboratory of Anthropology, the institution that since 1931 has had a decisive role in shaping Southwest archaeology, comprise this extraordinary award-winning book.
