Book: Native American Beadwork
1993, book includes illustrations and photographs by the author.
Georg J. Barth, librarian at a teachers college in Freiburg, Germany, has always been interested in North American Indian art. His research has been augments by extensive travels to American and European museums and private collections. An avid and exacting craftworker, he has been especially attracted to the classic beadwork of the Crow Indians.
He says, "I am most interested in Native American textile arts - particularly in techniques which cannot be reproduced by machines, such as beadwork, quillwork, or basketry, or the twining of Chilkat dancing baskets. Learning how these things were made leaves me in awe of and with deep respect for the American Indian artists and craftspeople who created them." ~Georg J. Barth 1993
