    In the late 1950s Chauncey C. Nash started collecting Inuit carvings just as the art of printmaking was being introduced in Kinngait (Cape Dorset), an Inuit community on Baffin Island in the Canadian territory of Nunavut. Nash donated some 300 prints and sculptures to Harvard's Peabody Museum. The book tells the story of a little-known collection that represents one of the most vibrant and experimental periods in the development of contemporary Inuit art.
