This catalogue surveys contemporary Inuit drawings with an introduction on the development of this medium and its relationship to printmaking, the workings of the various Co-ops, as well as the role played by Southerners and the government. The essay by art historian Jackson looks at generational changes and the process of acculturation, while the one written by Graburn discusses gender differences, market conditions and regional variations, based on his experience as an anthropologist in the Canadian Arctic.
