Navajo Textiles

One of the newer additions to our library collection is Navajo Textiles: The Crane Collection at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Published in 2017 by University Press of Colorado in conjunction with the museum, the book explores one of the world’s largest collections of Navajo textiles. “Bringing together the work of anthropologists and indigenous artists, the book explores the Navajo rug trade in the mid-nineteenth century and changes in the Navajo textile market while highlighting the museum’s important, though still relatively unknown, collection of Navajo textiles,” writes the publisher. Two of the book’s four co-authors are Navajo weavers. Check out Navajo Textiles directly from our library or through Prospector.
