Portfolio of Hopi Kachinas

I recently thrifted a framed print of a kachina doll by Homer Boelter, a skilled wood engraver and a master of the lithographic processes. Fascinated by my new treasure, I researched the artist online and discovered that there are 15 other kachina dolls in his Portfolio of Hopi Kachinas, which was published in 1969 and limited to 1,000 signed copies. While he was a leading book designer of Western lore, Homer became well acquainted with the culture and artistic talent of the Hopi people which lead him to the creation of these beautiful plates.
