Indian Baskets / Edition 3by Sarah Peabody Turnbaugh
Pub. Date: 01/28/2004
Publisher: Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
This handbook thoroughly explores the stunning diversity of North American Indian and Eskimo baskets. It includes less well-known native basketry in addition to the more common forms. This colorful book combines basket manufacture techniques, raw materials, forms, and decoration with information on native lifeways. More than 175 regional and tribal styles are documented in an easy-to-use and beautifully illustrated format.
Readers will be able to identify their own Indian baskets. The book's standardized terminology, identification keys, glossary, maps, and bibliographies add to its broad appeal. Hundreds of baskets were photographed for this volume in color and in black-and-white. Many are from the famous and unparallel collection of the Peabody Museum of Harvard University where the authors began their basketry research in the 1970's.
