Arts of the Eskimo: Prints, Ed. Ernst Roch, 1974 Hardcover First edition

Regular price $50.00

I don't sell a lot of books, but when I add one to the shop it is because I think it's pretty special. Like this one, which is actually the third copy of it I've bought. Collecting Inuit art would likely be the first thing I'd do if I had the means, but as it is this gorgeous 1974 book is the next best thing, with more than 100 full page reproductions of a diverse, stunning selection of prints, dating from the late 50s to the early 70s, produced by artists from the Cape Dorset, Povungnituk, Holman, Baker Lake, and Pangnirtung regions. This is one I would keep near at hand and look at a lot!

The 240 page, cloth-covered hardback with original dustcover, also features artist biographies, brief notes about each print, a bibliography, and two essays, including an essay by Patrick Furneaux tracing the history and development of printmaking centers and cooperatives in the regions featured.

Very good, clean condition. Light wear to the dustcover and a little sun fading to the cloth not he back cover; otherwise excellent.  10 3/8" x 10 1/4" x 1 1/4".
