Bead card set

Sample Card Set, 8 Sample Cards in a beautiful fold over cover by artist, Museum Curator, ethnographer and author - Bill Holm

The sample cards are hand sewn on the best quality hand made paper available internationaly. The paper was selected because it comes the closest to the texture and color of vintage brain tanned hide which most of the American Indian beaded objects were made from in pre reservation and early reservation times. The Art work is done by Bill Holm, Professor Emeritus of Art History, and Curator Emeritus of Northwest Coast Indian Art at the Burke Museum. Bill is recognized internationally as one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field of Northwest Coast Native art history as well as being an informed student of Plains, and Plateau Indian arts.
