Carrying On "Irregardless": Humour in Contemporary Northwest Coast Art provides a fine text by Peter Morin, Martine J. Reid and Mike Robinson discussing humor in Northwest Coast First Nations art, and accompanies a show mounted by the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art in Vancouver. It's a color book edited by Reid packing in over 100 photos of artwork by nearly thirty Northwest Coast artists, and helps define aboriginal humor and the presence of wit in Native pieces from different eras. From a prehistoric Coast Salish bowl to a 1999 print, this offers a wide variety of examples of such humor and is a 'must' not just for arts holdings or Northwest history collections, but for those focusing on ethnic humor or Native American culture as a whole.
