Handmade Christmas greeting from the Pacific Northwest artist and author, with an original print.
[Seattle]: [No date; circa 1968]. Printed on a single 28" x 24" sheet. Folded, and with a couple light spots of tape on the reverse, else near fine condition. Holm, or possibly Mrs. Holm, has written above and below the image: "Merry Christmas, Marty, Bill, Carla + Karen Holm. Print of the cabin door of our sloop Giva'wis." Holm is one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field of Northwest Coast Native art history. He is the author of eight books in the field. This print appears to be a silkscreen (serigraph). It depicts carvings in the manner of Pacific Northwest coast native art, probably Kwakiutl. It is unclear of Holm actually executed the carving, but it seems likely. Hardback (Item ID: 23223)
