Backeddy Books Idaho Artists


Idaho Artists: A Contemporary Selection by Cort Conley, the first book of its kind in more than 20 years,
profiles 36 men and women from 22 towns with 17 art forms whose lifeway compels them to “make art.”
It examines the wellsprings of their creativity, their traditions and training, how they go about their work,
and their own aspirations and assimilated inspirations.

Idaho is favored with a remarkable number of fine artists, particularly if one’s definition of art is expansive
enough to include objects of enduring beauty, handmade and unique. Such art encompasses, for example,
things as disparate as signs and books, saddles and belt buckles.

Perfect bound and printed on 80# coated stock, accompanied by 120 color photographs,
the text conveys the remarkable range of Gem State artistry.

168 pages, $15.95 plus $6.80 tax, shipping, and handling. ISBN 970932129482
