Northwest Coast Indian Art

An Analysis of Form, New and Updated 50th Anniversary Edition

University of Washington Press
After many years of examining countless artifacts, from Bella Coola to Yakutat Bay, and after himself creating objects in the same style, artist-teacher Bill Holm makes available the results of his investigation in this handsomely illustrated volume. With his deep knowledge and understanding of Indian art, the author has recognized how these pieces, although varied in origin, material, size, and purpose, are related to a surprising degree in the organization and form of their two-dimensional surface decoration.
Bill Holm is an artist, author, and art historian specializing in the visual arts of Northwest Coast Indigenous peoples as well as a practitioner and teacher of the Northwest Coast art style.
