It is apparent that there was, on the Northwest Coast, a highly developed system for the organization of form and space in two-dimensional design as an adjunct to the well-known symbolism. Design ranging from nearly realistic representation to abstraction resulted from the application of the principles of this system. --from Northwest Coast Indian Art

"A genuinely analytical study of the basic elements of form which characterizes a particular aboriginal art... . The text is clear and brings truly fresh understanding and appreciation to a complex art; it also contributes a concept of analysis which should be applied to other areas. The book is well designed and very well illustrated."-- Choice
