Vancouver, British Columbia: Douglas & McIntyre, Ltd, 1980. Hardcover. VG- (DJ has slight tanning on inner top edge; otherwise clean.). Tan cloth, gilt letters on spine, black & color illus. dust jacket, 131 pp., 101 BW illus., 5 color plates. "Salish weaving ... is one of the great aboriginal arts of North America. For at least twelve centuries the Salish people of the Pacific Northwest coast have spun mountain goat hair and other fibres, and produced weavings which exhibit great technical skill, a sophisticated sense of colour and design, and an exciting vocabulary of emotional symbolism. Although the art was nearly lost, like so much else during the era of European encroachment and colonization, enough of the old knowledge survived to enable a revival during the 1960s, when a group of dedicated Salish women again began weaving in the ancient ways. [This book] probes meticulously into the history and prehistory of Salish weaving, and documents its recent revival. Known historical styles are discussed and compared, and the book includes, as an invaluable appendix, a catalogue of all traditional Salish weavings known to exist in museum collections throughout the world."
