Indian Basketmakers of the Southwest: The Living Art and Fine Tradition

Larry Dalrymple

Recently there has been an electrifying basket renaissance across much of the Southwest—a burst of creativity and innovation documented in this volume, which includes the contemporary baskets and basketmaking traditions of Southwestern tribes including Haulapai, Havasupai, Yavapai, Western Apache, the Jicarilla Apache, the Ute, San Juan Paiute, and Navajo, the Tohono O'odham, Akimel O'odham, the Pueblos of New Mexico, and Hopi of Arizona.


Larry Dalrymple has been a collector of Indian baskets for more than two decades. He is an educational consultant who lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.


"These strong, handsome, informative, and attractive books give penetrating views of . . . the richness of the traditions, the current state of the art, and the beauty of the products. . . . Arresting photos from historic sources as well as images of current baskets and portraits by Dalrymple of the basketmakers are all well chosen and forceful."
