The green decorative endpapers feature Gustave Baumann woodcuts not used in the original publication; they are seen here for the first time. German-born Gustave Baumann was an influential American printmaker and key figure in the color woodcut revival. This series of prints, based upon pictographs found in Frijoles Canyon (within Bandolier National Monument) , illustrate the deep love and respect that Baumann felt for the Southwest. They clearly represent the pictographs, while still showing Baumann's hand. Primarily single-color, there are three tri-color prints included, including a monumental four-page fold-out image. The prints and images are further contextualized by lyrical essays from both Baumann and preeminent archaeologist Alfred Vincent Kidder. ; Book; Wood block print; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 22 pp .
