Featured Title

The Pottery of Acoma Pueblo
Dwight P. Lanmon and Francis H. Harlow

The pottery-making tradition of Acoma Pueblo is one of the most significant among the surviving pueblos of the American Southwest, and the craft continues to be important and profitable there today. Pottery made at Acoma has evolved considerably in form and decoration over the last seven centuries. This book is a comprehensive illustrated survey of Acoma pottery made between about 1300 and the present, illustrated with more than 1400 images—examples from museum and private collections, many published for the first time. There are also more than 940 names and biographies of potters working between the mid-1800s and the present.
