Baker & Taylor Examines pottery from tribal groups in the Southwest
NBN An art book, a history book, and a reference book showcasing more than 1,100 pots. There isn't a more complete southwestern pottery guide.
Book News A beautifully and thoughtfully prepared guide that mixes personable, informative text with photos of pieces from every pottery-producing tribal group in the Southwest. The authors discuss the background and distinctive characteristics of each group; explain what to look for when buying a pot as well as how much to pay, and when and how to trade; and offer guidance for novices who want to build a collection without breaking the bank. They include an illustrated dictionary of pottery types, samples of signatures, and discussions of significant potters and families. A handsome book at a fair price.
