The Inuit Imagination
Arctic Myth and SculptureBook - 2001
Seidleman, owner of an art gallery in Toronto, and Turner an independent researcher and writer, share a life-long passion for Inuit culture and art. Their collaboration produced this unusual book, which insists that readers who might be unaccustomed to stepping beyond the material world into spiritual and imaginative realms must do so if they wish to grasp the essence of the peoples who inhabit the polar ice fields, south to the 60th parallel. Carefully researched text combining stories, songs, and oral reminiscences sets the context for the works of sculpture which were selected from many collections and are depicted here in 170-plus photographs. This is a paperbound reprint of a 1993 book (Thames & Hudson). Oversize: 9x12" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
