The Adobe Book

The Adobe Book by John F. O’Connor. “This how-to is designed for both novice and skilled builders, owners, and prospective owners of adobe houses. O’Connor, an engineer, covers every phase of construction – from testing soil, stabilizing, and manfacturing adobe blocks to details of interior and exterior woodwork, ironwork, tiles, and tinwork. He explains how to make foundations, floors, walls, and roofs and gives precise specifications of heating, plumbing, and electricity. Twelve floor plans in both Territorial and Pueblo styles are included, as are many designs for kitchens, bathrooms, and fireplaces. O’Connor believes the adobe house should ‘grow’ from the site, and he also discusses portals, patios, and landscaping. He gives a brief Adobe History and prefaces his text with a complete guide to planning your house. Photographs, drawings, diagrams, and technical charts make this an indispensable handbook and reference for anyone interested in construction, architecture, solar energy, and Southwestern lifestyles.” Softbound book is 8-1/2" x 11" and contains 152 pages. Published in 1973, this book is in perfect condition with no damage whatsoever. Tell a friend.

Clowns of the Hopi: Tradition Keepers and Delight Makers

Clowns of the Hopi: Tradition Keepers and Delight Makers by Barton Wright. “In Hopi, a sacred clown is a combination of jester, priest, and shaman, and can serve many purposes. Clowns amuse audiences through their silly antics, intensifying rituals by contrasting the sublime and the ridiculous, and control non-conformist behavior through comic object lessons. Hopi clowns are truly the ultimate tradition keepers and the supreme delight makers. Barton Wright’s essential guide to Hopi clowns identifies and illustrates the personages considered to be clowns (and those that are not), explains the purposes of the various clowns, provides historical background, and delves into the Hopi carvers’ popular representations of these figures as dolls or tihus. The only complete resource on Hopi clowns, Clowns of the Hopi is a book for the collector and the casual reader alike.” This 136-page 6-7/8" x 9-1/2" softbound book is packed with full-color photos and diagrams. Front cover retains its silver seal designating it as a Benjamin Franklin Award winner. Published in 2004, this book is in perfect condition with no damage whatsoever. Tell a friend.

Crown King and the Southern Bardshaws: A Complete History

Crown King and the Southern Bardshaws: A Complete History by Bruce M. Wilson. If you’ve never been to Crown King, AZ, this 105-page 8-1/2" x 11" softbound book may well whet your appetite for a road trip! Originally published in 1990, this is the 1999 Fourth Printing version, which is the year Ol’ Swaphos and I bought it after accidentally discovering Crown King on one of our van treks off the beaten track through the Bradshaw Mountains on our way south from Prescott to Phoenix. Crown King is “only” 28 miles west of Interstate 17, but what a drive it is! We were so taken with this little former mining town, nearly a ghost town today, that we had to buy this book so we could learn more Crown King lore later at our leisure. Author Bruce M. Wilson actually lived in Crown King for several years during the 1970s and has put together a fascinating book, complete with old black-and-white photos, about its illustrious history. This book is in outstanding condition with only one tiny slit at the bottom edge of the front cover. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we have! Tell a friend.

The Desert Southwest

The Desert Southwest with text by Nora Burba and Paula Panich, photographs by Terrence Moore. “The Southwest is unique and varied. Vast stretches of open deserts push up against dramatic mountain ranges, endless mesas suddenly drop off into breathtaking canyons, blazing hot days dissolve into cool, quiet nights. Rich in history and tradition, legend and mystery, this is a timeless, beautiful land. Ancient Indian pueblos still coexist with new sunbaked adobe houses; vividly painted indigenous art and simple hand-carved furnishings and sculpture remain as valuable artistic expressions. This book captures the essence of this region as reflected through the dwellings, both old and new, that are part of the landscape. From the mountains of northern New Mexico to the deserts of southern Arizona, from the arid hills of west Texas to the sun-drenched valleys of southern California, a variety of classic (and not so classic) houses successfully portray the spirit of this remarkable territory in both their exterior and interior detail. More than 250 spectacular color photographs accompanied by lifely, provocative text, reveal the many elements of American southwestern architecture and design.” Published in 1987, this 10-1/4" x 10-1/4" hardbound book still retains its dust jacket. Both the book and the dust jacket are in perfect condition with no damage whatsoever. Tell a friend.

Kachinas: A Hopi Artist’s Documentary

Kachinas: A Hopi Artist’s Documentary by Barton Wright with original paintings by Cliff Bahnimptewa. “Barton Wright, the recognized authority on Hopi Kachinas, has prepared a detailed commentary on 237 kachina paintings, all reproduced in full color. The paintings are all by the same artist, Cliff Bahnimptewa, a member of the Hopi tribe. This is, without doubt, the most interesting, colorful and comprehensive book ever assembled on this subject. Hopi Kachinas have for years captured the imagination and curiosity of Indian and non-Indian alike. These supernatural beings reprsent the important and the ordinary factors in the daily life of the Hopis. There are Kachina personalities for such diverse subjects as a Corn Maiden and a Deer. The Hopis personate them in specific rituals to persuade these spirits to perform certain acts which are necessary for the Hopis’ existence, such as providing rain for crops and assuring the increase of game animals. This remarkable book will be a pleasure for either the serious student or the casual reader.” Originally published in 1973, this 12-1/4" x 9-1/4" (landscape orientation) hardbound book is the 1987 edition and still retains its dust jacket. The 262 pages are packed with photos of Cliff Bahnimptewa’s beautiful and intriguing Kachinas, each one fully described. Both the book and the dust jacket are in perfect condition with no damage whatsoever. Tell a friend.

Making The Adobe Brick

Making the Adobe Brick by Eugene H. Boudreau. “The purpose of this book is to acquaint the reader with all the information necessary to make adobe bricks that conform to the specifications of the Uniform Building Code, and thus can be used for building a house or other structure. My wife and I made 7,000 adobe bricks, totaling about 120 tons, and then built a nine-room house with them. Much of my knowledge was gained through trial and error as I had no previous experience in this art, being a geologist by trade.” Thus begins this 7" x 10-1/2" softbound book, and Mr. Boudreau indeed learned well! The 88 pages are packed with step-by-step instructions, photographs, and diagrams. Published in 1971, this book is in perfect condition with no damage whatsoever. Tell a friend.

North American Indian Portraits

North American Indian Portraits by James Horan. “This sumptuous volume contains 120 of the most famous Indians in American history, reproduced in full color as they were painted more than 150 years ago by some of the country’s famed artists.
