Format: Paperback
Author Erik Bromberg provides the reader with a good, basic introduction to the art of kachina doll carving. The photography of Michael Mouchette is simple in style and foremat ... place the doll in front of a gray or brown background and shoot. Price is what makes this book most appealing. It's publication date of 1986, however, leaves the reader without a TRUE picture of the advances made in this art form over the past decade. Pick up a copy of this book; it's worth the initial investment. Then take an additional step ... compare it to a book from the mid 90's ... you'll SEE the difference!

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best I've seen on the subject of kachina dolls and their carvers. A great reference as well as a strong introduction to the art. Describes the differences between Hopi and Navajo styles, with high quality photos. Along with my Barton Wright, this book is invaluable as a collecting reference book. The appendix includes a big list of Hopi carvers' names and a page of translated symbols.

It is exactly what I was looking for. Great book on Kachina's. It gives general idea of the Hopi kachina and some history. Great small book.

One of my 3 favorite, FULL COLOR, books on Katchinas. The other 2 are: 1) "Hopi Kachina Dolls and their carvers" by Theda
Bassman and 2) "Following The Sun And Moon Hopi Kachina Tradition" by Alph H. Secakuku. I HIGHLY recommend ALL 3.
