From Museum of New Mexico Press Announcement:
The book offers a history of Zuni Pueblo, an introduction to Ashiwi (Zuni) pottery, as well as a chronological history of the craft. The authors examine fine and rare examples of pots—many of which are from private collections—in terms of forms and designs from the ancient antecedents of Zuni pottery to the contemporary work being produced today. Every individual type and style of pottery made at Zuni is discussed and illustrated chronologically and in detail.
The definitive treatment of the extraordinarily popular Zuni Pueblo's long and complex ceramic tradition, this book sets the gold standard and will be an indispensable reference for researchers, collectors, Native arts enthusiasts, archaeologists, and visitors to the Southwest.
