Laurel Casjens color photos illustrate. New. No Jacket Issued. Book CONDITION: NEW (shrink-wrapped) 1995 University of Utah Press soft cover, assumed first printing. Detailed color photos by Laurel Casjens. CONTENT: From approximately AD 1 to 1300, the people we now refer to as Anasazi inhabited parts of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. Their impressive and enigmatic rock art and architectural ruins are well known, but the arid Four Corners climate has also preserved such artifacts as loomed clothes, intricate baskets, and sandals. This book is the most comprehensive volume on Anasazi sandals and weaving technique. Three hundred twelve examples from the extensive holdings at the Utah Museum of Natural History demonstrate the Anasazi genius as skilled textile artists. These examples incorporate colorful geometric patterns and reveal elaborate manipulations of warp and weft. Within the relatively rigid requirements of size, shape, and function, the ancient sandal weavers created almost as many decorative expressions as there are recorded specimens. The impact of the sandals as a group is emotionally and aesthetically powerful-a tribute to the Anasazi sandal weavers.
