Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Peckham (the Museum of New Mexico) traces the traditions of Anasazi and Mogollon pottery from the earliest examples through the centuries up to the fine pieces being made today. His abundant and deeply informed text is embellished by 175 excellent photos--many in expert color--depicting the changes and relationships and exhibiting some of the best work of various periods. This exemplary 10x11" book deserves better than paper covers--handsome as they are. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
