Across Frontiers: Hispanic Crafts of New Mexico
Across Frontiers is the first book to do justice to the modern artwork created in the four-hundred-year-old tradition of Hispanic crafts: dramatic Rio Grande weavings, finely crafted woodwork and furniture, imaginative tinwork and straw applique, and richly carved and painted santos. Including interviews with local artists and a fascinating history of the area by author Dexter Cirillo, this portrait of a remarkable cultural landscape describes how Spanish, Mexican, and American frontiers have overlapped to create an entirely unique indigenous aesthetic.
