A little dry, but contains a lot of information about Inuit art including many photos of sculpture and some 2-D art. Chapters are organized chronologically by eras of Inuit art production. Others have criticized this approach but I didn't mind at all. Especially since at some point the author does have sections focused on locales/regions. This book gave me a good foundation in the history of Inuit art. There is some text which reads like a history book. 3-4 stars/5 stars.
