Curtis' The North American Indian

Often created for exhibitions or commissioned by collectors, fine bindings or design bindings are born from the marriage of design, craftsmanship, and artistry. This particular fine binding is of Edward Curtis' The North American Indian. By including the name of all of the tribes, I wanted to pay tribute to the rich heritage of native peoples in America while also acknowledging the tragic decimation of these tribes and their cultures.
