Collectors' Edition consists of 200 copies bound in leather with cloth covered slipcase. Each copy is signed and numbered. Schaaf's series are important resources to the student or collector of southwest Native American art.

This book is organized alphabetically like a telephone book. Looking up a particular artist only takes seconds. The volume actually profiles 2,150 potters from the past two centuries, featuring over 1,000 illustrations of pottery and artist portraits. Because Pueblo pottery making is a family tradition, their history reveals how different forms, techniques and designs were passed down from generation-to-generation.

 

This book was created with the cooperation of Pueblo Indian artists. Through artist surveys, archival research and personal interviews, information was collected in 25 categories: including the artist’s pueblo, clan, active years, lifespan, family relationships, education, teachers, students, awards, demonstrations, exhibitions, collections, favorite designs, publications and twenty years of auction records. Many artists completed a personal statement, “I enjoy creating artwork, because…” Some wrote or narrated autobiographical statements.
