Thought of by scholars as examples of tourist art and written off as a "passing fad," the Yeibichai weavings captured the imagination of wealthy collectors. Focusing solely on the special category of twentieth-century Navajo textiles, this book is an insightful read which traces the stylistic evolution of the genre from the original designs created in the 1910-1935 to the more standardized patterns which emerged in the late 1930s and 1940s.
