In 1964, Helen Cordero of Cochiti pueblo created the first storyteller, a clay image of her grandfather with five children clinging to him. Here the reader will find the most extensive collection of storytellers ever gathered in print. Over 400 pieces by nearly 150 artists are shown in full color, and organized by pueblo.
"This first documentation of the Storyteller phenomenon contains a wealth of information for scholars, collectors, and general readers. Barbara Babcock's text links the invention of the Storyteller to Pueblo figurative tradition, traces the revival of figurative ceramics, makes stylistic comparisons, and discusses the artistic contributions of individual artists and Pueblos. The book is impressively illustrated and features a large section of color plates by award-winning photographer GuyMonthan. Photographs of Storytellers are enhanced by descriptive captions and quotations from the artists compiled by Doris Monthan, who has also provided biographical charts of the artists. Her listing of 233 potters who make Storytellers and related figures--in addition to 146 family members who are also potters--constitutes one of the most extensive documentations of Southwest Indian potters available in a single volume."--From front cover flap.
