Navajo Pictorial Weaving
Authors: Tyrone D. Campbell and Steven Begner
Back in print, expanded, and revised, the second edition of Navajo Pictorial Weaving is devoted to all categories of antique Navajo pictorial weaving. The second edition includes 92 new images of weavings discovered in the last three decades, many never before published or exhibited.
Through these nearly 300 photos and short texts, both the novice and advanced collector can reach a better understanding of the enigmatic and unusual body of Navajo pictorial weaving. Also featured is a one-of-a-kind comprehensive chart of the Navajo ceremonial system.
Offering the newest discoveries, this treasury reemphasizes that Navajo pictorial weaving is a truly American folk art. Significant pictorials are organized into eight chapters covering all major categories, including these and many others: Birds, Flora, Fauna & Livestock; Transportation, Technology, the Railroad and Its Influence; Yeis, Yeibichais, and Corn Yeis; and Kachinas, Masks, and Images from the Hopi.
Tyrone D. Campbell has been a noted author, lecturer, and dealer in antique American Indian art for 45 years and is the author of seven books and museum catalogs. His guest curatorial positions include major museums across the country.
Native American art expert Steven Begner is an owner of Turkey Mountain Traders in Evergreen, Colorado.
