On August 10, 2006, Marquand Books launched the publication of Transfigurations: North Pacific Coast Art, a limited edition book of important Native American masterpieces. Known internationally for collecting and placing North Pacific Coast artwork and artifacts of the highest caliber, George Terasaki stands among the preeminent individuals in the field. Of the many thousands of artworks that have passed through his hands over the years, he has retained only a few of the most remarkable objects for his private collection. Few of these have ever been published before now. Less well known than the objects themselves are Terasaki's photographs of them-images that reveal his deep appreciation and emotional connection with each piece. At 12 × 13½ inches, this luxurious 248-page hardcover book illuminates these spectacular artworks in a deluxe presentation worthy of their quality. Noted scholar Steven Clay Brown provides insight and new scholarship on each of these prime examples of Native American art. A foreword by Edmund Carpenter introduces the collection. Privately published by Marquand Books, this sumptuous volume is printed in full color on 200 gsm GardaPat 13 stock and is bound in Brillianta cloth. Transfigurations is limited to 450 copies of the standard edition, and 50 copies of a special slipcase edition, which includes a signed Terasaki photograph in a separate print folder, also bound in Brillianta cloth. Each book is shipped in a tailored mailing carton.
