From the Inside Cover:
The delightful arts of American Indian tribes in the Southwest are occasionally made in miniature by especially talented artists who dare to work in tiny scale. This book presents for the first time, a wide array of these miniatures of all the major craft styles of the region. Shown through hundreds of all color photographs, the miniature arts are arranged in sections devoted to beadwork, rattles, sandpaintings, weavings, basketry, Kachinas, paintings, and pottery. The weavings section includes geometric and pictorial styles from each of the regional areas, while the basketry and pottery sections have all the major style areas represented. Wherever possible, the artists and their regions are identified. This collection of truly appealing tiny art works will be enjoyed for many years to come.
