A truly international treatment of its subject, The Spirit of Folk Art draws upon the vast resources of the Girard Collection, amassed by Alexander and Susan Girard and housed at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe. Distinguished folklorist and scholar Henry Glassie offers a vigorous and often lyrical discussion of the nature of folk art. More than 345 illustrations, including 285 in full color and 50 field photographs showing the various artists at work, provide a rich complement to Glassie's insights.
