about

A seminal single-volume overview of the magnificent art of the Northwest Coast, with text from a distinguished authority augmented by full-colour images throughout.

Art Of The Northwest Coast is a superbly illustrated and informed overview of the First Nations art of the Northwest Coast, covering the region from Puget Sound to Haida Gwaii to Alaska, and proceeding from prehistoric times to the present. Created in the spirit of the best-selling Thames & Hudson World of Art series, this groundbreaking volume provides an overview of the development of the art's styles and meanings in the context of the region's social history.

Aldona Jonaitis argues convincingly that rather than being lost following European contact, Native traditions were simply expressed in different ways, and that First Nations art is now flourishing as never before. Compellingly written and beautifully designed, Art of the Northwest Coast is essential reading for anyone interested in art, First Nations cultures and the evolution of both.
