This is the book that started it all. Bill Holm, while not a native, wrote a Master's thesis on the forms and functions he saw in the art of tribes from the Northwest Coast (from Neah Bay at the tip of Washington state up through Haines in SE Alaska). With the understanding of these stylized forms finally in print, both native and non-native artists came to see how Raven, Eagle, Bear, and other totem images could be portrayed and interwoven.
This book is fundamental to understanding NW Indian art.

For anyone who wants to make a serious study of the Coastal Indian Art. The author conducted the first and probably the only scientific study of the forms used in coastal carving. Well illustrated and covering the full range of Coastal Indian artifacts he provides a technical explaination of the formline and how it was modified. For the artist he discusses the ovid form providing templates and the rules that were followed in design. He also covers color and the rules followed in its use. This is the only source of information I have found that addresses itself to form. For a serious artist who desires to carve in this Coastal Indian style this text in an invaluable tool. Available in paperback it is sturdy enough to be used in the studio and used it will be!

In the 20th Century, Bill Holm is the greatest contributor to the understanding of the wonderful art of the NW Coast. This book is the first modern explanation, even perhaps the first modern understanding, of the classic "northern form" I.E. the more formal and stylistic Haida / Tlingit / Tshimshian types NW Coast Indian art. A must read for those curious about this monumental American art form.
