Master Weavers By Mark Winter Navajo Rug Toadlena Two Grey Hills New Hardback For Sale

Master Weavers By Mark Winter Navajo Rug Toadlena Two Grey Hills New Hardback

Offered here is one fastastic book for all of you thatyou've beenwanting to learn from one of the top scholars in the Navajo weaving world. This sale is for a new hardback copy of The Master Weavers (still wrapped in plastic), Celebrating One Hundred Years of Navajo Textile Artists from the Toadlena / Two Grey Hills Weaving Region by Mark Winter.

From just inside the dust cover:

The Master Weavers, Celebrating one Hundred Years of Navajo Textile Artists from the Toadlena/Two Grey Hills Weaving Region, is the cumination of over twenty years of research. Gathered from museums, public archives and private families is the history of the spectacularly scenic region, the local traders, and the notable weaving families. It is intertwined with information acquired during thousands of interviews with the region’s weavers. The book illustrates the lineage of the local weaving tradition that has passed from grandmothers to mother, and mothers to daughters (and sometimes sons), that continues to this day…

Also included with this terrific reference manual is a very unique “bookmark” to save your place as you journey through all 7+ lbs. It is a copy of a First Premium ribbon won by Master Weaver Daisy Taugelchee at the Arizona State Fair 1958, awarded by the Indian Arts & Crafts Department, kept nice with a plastic sleeve. Along with this first place ribbon is a copy of a letter written in 1958 that was written by Gil Maxwell of Farmington, NM to “Frank” mentioning the rug that won the ribbon. The hand written letter goes on to talk about a sizzling tidbit in history about J.B. Moore & his “prize package” wife and their questionable time while running a mission for the Navajos…. This letter also mentions Charlie Newcum (sic), Tom Keams, C. N. Cotton & Lorenzo Hubbell. Since the letter is enclosed inside the cover of the plastic wrapped book, we snapped a photo of ours that came with our personal copy.(shine in the photos is a reflection off the protective plastic wrap only as the dust cover is beautiful)
