Featuring nearly 100 full-color reproductions of Germaine Arnaktauyok’s most important works from throughout her career, this beautiful book provides an in-depth look at one of the Canadian North’s most prolific and recognizable artists. In this book, she tells the story of her life in her own words: her traditional Inuk life growing up in a camp near Igloolik, Nunavut; her experiences in a residential school in Chesterfield Inlet; her education as an artist in Winnipeg and Ottawa; and her return to the North, where she continues to create drawings, etchings, and illustrations that have been featured in museums and galleries worldwide. She also provides commentary on several of her works, offering a seldom-seen glimpse into her inspiration and process.
