This book is the first comprehensive monograph of the work of legendary Haida artist Charles Edenshaw, overviewing a unique collection of his work, and his legacy. 

Charles Edenshaw was from Haida Gwaii, British Colombia, Canada, and happens to be one of the most iconic figures in Northwest Coast art. He was known for his traditional Haida woodcarvings, argillite carvings, jewellery and paintings, with an innovative and elegant personal style. The book offers a rare opportunity to see and read about his legacy. In addition, the objects featured inside tell us much about Haida culture and history. Even now his work continues to be a great inspiration to those who visit the many museums around the world that hold his artwork in their collections. It is also a great inspiration to the new generation artists and designers, some of whom we have featured on CreativeRoots – Siggi Odds, Steve Smith and the Vancouver Airport.
