Light edge wear and corner curl to glossy pictorial card covers. ; A bright, solid book ; Trade PB; B&W Illustrations; 9.80 X 8 X 0.40 inches; 167 pages; "Over 200 years ago , when Europeans first visited the Nortwest Coast of North America, the weavers of the area were making robes of exquisite beauty to adorn the wealthiest of their noble class. Today only 11 robes exist. To produce this book, Cheryl Samuel travelled to Leningrad, Copenhagen, and London to examine the six robes in Europe. She also studied the robes housed in museums in Canada and the United States. In 1985, she reconstructed Chief Kotleanís robe, using information she had gathered from her study of the actual robes and Tikhanovís paintings. In the process, she resurrected an old weaving style no longer used by the Native people on the northern coast. Through her extensive and careful research, Cheryl Samuel makes an important contribution to the knowledge of early Indian weaving." She examines the detail and weaving styles of each of these 11 robes, and shows B&W illustrations of each in photographs and drawings. Cheryl Samuel is an expert weaver.
