Published to celebrate 50 years of printmaking in Cape Dorset, this publication pays tribute to the Inuit community’s continued dynamism by pairing new and innovative work from Kinngait Studios with the original 1959 collection, shown for the first time in five decades. Essays describing, first-hand, the hard work and resolve that went into making the first prints are paired with essays providing an inside view of the studios today and the challanges they continue to face. Magnificently illustrated with work by elder, established and emerging artists, notably, Josephie Pootoogook, Tudlik Akesuk and Lukta Qiatsuq and Annie Pootoogook, Shuvinai Ashoona and Jutai Toonoo.
