The book features more than 100 photos taken in artists’ workshops, galleries, collectors’ homes and on Haida Gwaii, along with profiles on talented argillite sculptors and carvers like Jay Simeon, Robert Vogstad, Darrell White, Martin Williams, Chris Russ, Lionel Samuels and more. Those interested in learning more about the book and meeting some of the talent involved in creating it can attend another book signing event at the Haida Heritage Centre in Skidegate starting at 6 pm tonight (July 3).
