Back in print, expanded, and revised, the second edition of Navajo Pictorial Weaving is devoted to all categories of antique Navajo pictorial weaving. The second edition includes 92 new images of weavings discovered in the last three decades, many never before published or exhibited. Through these nearly 300 photos and short texts, both the novice and advanced collector can reach a better understanding of the enigmatic and unusual body of Navajo pictorial weaving. Also featured is a one-of-a-kind comprehensive chart of the Navajo ceremonial system. Offering the newest discoveries, this treasury reemphasizes that Navajo pictorial weaving is a truly American folk art. Significant pictorials are organized into eight chapters covering all major categories, including these and many others: "Birds, Flora, Fauna & Livestock," "Transportation, Technology, the Railroad and Its Influence," "Yeis, Yeibichais, and Corn Yeis," and "Kachinas, Masks, and Images from the Hopi."

"This book is an expanded and revised edition of the original 1991 publication. New images of weavings discovered in the intervening years are included, thus forming a comprehensive photographic collection of pictorial weaving by the Navajo weavers. Although intended for the collector of folk art textiles, it is also a fascinating resource book for any weaver looking to gain ideas and inspiration for their own work. Whether a collector of Navajo tapestries or a weaver interested in this pictorial style of the craft, both will marvel at the weavers skill and perception to translate an image they physically can see or visualise into a tapestry." - Jo Finlow, Hampshire and Online Guilds, Journal of Textiles and Weavers August 2020
