New book on "Navajo & Pueblo Jewelry Design 1870-1945" by Paula A. Baxter

Has anyone gotten this book yet? I saw a write-up in the Wall St. Journal. The pages I’ve seen on Amazon and websites look amazing. Over 450 images.

Are there any other books on Native American Jewelry or Ceramics you all recommend?

Be well.


Try this thread: Books on Southwest Indian Jewelry?

I have it and it’s gorgeous. Have only briefly dug into it, but I see that it’s mostly not a retread of her other books, which was a relief. I prefer books with little overlap! Lots of new pieces shown (not new as in era, just not represented elsewhere). My understanding is that it’s supposed to be Paula B’s capstone project.

One thing I like is seeing some new collections/collectors represented, compared to previous publications.
