Co-published with the Canadian Museum of Civilization and McGill- Queen's U. Press, this handsome volume catalogs the tapestries created by Canadian Inuit weavers in the village of Pangnirtung after tapestry weaving was introduced as a cottage industry in 1969. Four lengthy essays precede the catalog. The catalog entries include a biography of the artist, their own words on the work reproduced (in quality full-page color plates), and a short description. Three of the volume's four authors have worked in Pangnirtung, the editor is a curator at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
