One Picture Book #70
By Joni Harbeck & Neil Krug.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2011. 16 pp., 11 color illustrations, one original print, 5¾x7½".
The Indian Girl collection, created by artist duo Neil Krug and Joni Harbeck, taps into the savage yet simple existence of a past Native woman living on, and protecting, the land of her people. With its blend of guns, beauty and ritual mixed with Pulp Art Book's signature style, these photographs lay down a story that plays again and again in our society. Indian Girl was first introduced in Pulp Art Book: Volume One, published by Nazraeli Press earlier this year, and is the subject of Krug and Harbeck's B-movie-esque contribution to our One Picture Book series.
