Lar Hothem's newest book, Ornamental Indian Artifacts, has over a dozen major chapters, ranging from prehistoric to early historic to more recent times. The book contains over 1,800 color photographs, each with information on type, materials, size, origin, and a current collector value. Popular artifact types including bannerstones, gorgets, pendants, pipes, discoidals, and plummets, are shown. Many of the artifacts are from advanced private collections and have never before been seen in any publication. Two growing collecting fields, Eskimo and Latin American artifacts, are explored this time. A general information chapter provides interesting background facts about ornamental artifacts, while another explores the subject from an archaeological perspective. There is a large chapter on recent auction results so that collectors can see what some artifacts have brought during competitive bidding. Fans of Hothem's other Indian titles will once again be delighted with his latest book
