Holman Prints

Holman is a community in the Western Arctic on the shores of Victoria Island, NWT, and is only one of two Inuit communities, which have for over 35 years, nearly continuously issued an annual collection of limited-edition prints. Over this period of time, the artists have evolved and adapted to new materials and methods of printing. This has seen with the progression of time, Holman prints change in character from monochromatic stonecut lithographs to vibrantly colored and detailed stencils.

Throughout the history of printmaking in Holman, three generations of printers have successfully participated in this art form. Given all the changes in methods of printing throughout this period, Holman artists have always retained as subjects the Inuit legends and mythologies, and their cultural character and identity.

After the prints are produced, each print is titled, numbered and signed. The inscription 7/35 means that the print in question is the seventh (7) produced and numbered of a maximum regular edition of thirty-five (35) prints produced bearing that image. To further assure control and as a GUARANTEE of Authenticity, each print is affixed with a chop-mark, that is, a printed or embossed symbol representing the "ulu" trademark of the Holman Eskimo Co-operative Limited through whom the prints are released. Prints prior to 1975 bore the designation "Eskimo Western Arctic".

The b & w photo is from the Holman Eskimo Prints catalogue, 1966.
