267 pp, oblong large 8vo (9 3/8" H x 10 5/16" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour reproductions. Bilingual text (English/French). "The 155 prints reproduced in this widely acclaimed catalogue, 12 of them in full colour, constitute a retrospective survey of the first twenty years of Inuit printmaking in the Canadian Arctic. Selected for exhibition internationally, the prints provide exciting insights into the traditions and beliefs of a unique group of artists. Five widely scattered communities are represented - Cape Dorset (where James Houston introduced the Inuit to this form of expression in 1957 and guided their first experiments), Holman, Baker Lake, Pangnirtung, and Povungnituk and other centres in Arctic Quebec. Each community's printmaking history, artists and stylistic techniques are comprehensively documented. The texts accompanying the prints explain the events that are depicted or elucidate the lore and mythology represented." Minor edge wear, minor soiling on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wear at corners and at top/bottom of spine, one very small closed tear, light fading to spine colour, slight fading on flap-folds and top edge of flaps.
