Summary:"Kenojuak Ashevak (1927-2013) is widely considered a Canadian national treasure. She was a groundbreaking artist for Kinngait Studios, in the Arctic territory of Nunavut, and ultimately a pioneer of modern Inuit art. Ashevak made her first print as a member of the cooperative studios in 1958, and for decades she continued to transform the plants and animals of the Inuit world into radiant works of art. After establishing her reputation in 1960 with The Enchanted Owl-an image so popular it was reproduced on a Canadian postage stamp-she worked nearly nonstop. She contributed to Cape Dorset's print collection almost every year and completed countless pieces. This book celebrates her life and legacy, presenting a selection of drawings and the prints they were turned into. An essay by Leslie Boyd, author and editor of multiple books on the artists of Cape Dorset, and a foreword by Silaqi Ashevak, Kenojuak's daughter, add context to the work. Both the essay and forward are presented in English, French, and Inuktitut"--
