Welcome to Pacific Editions Limited.
Publishers of Northwest Coast Native Indian Fine Art Prints since 1971.
The art displayed here is created by the indigenous artists of the northwest coast, B.C. and the woodlands of Ontario. Artists of Nuu-Chah-Nulth, KwakWaka' Wakw, Salish, Tsimshian, Gitxsan, Ojibway, Tlingit' and Haida heritage have drawn on the wealth of their cultural backgrounds to produce works of art from which limited edition prints are made.
These images are inspired by: ancient traditional designs found on cultural artifacts, by objects used in tribal life, from oral histories of fabulous beings, from scenes occurring in nature & family crests. Some artists stay in a traditional style with their designs, and others are exploring contemporary influences.
Since 1968 Pacific Editions Limited has worked in collaboration with artists to produce limited edition silk-screen prints. As a distributor and supplier of Northwest Coast Indian Art Prints to private collectors and many museums (including: the British Museum, the Japanese Museum of Ethnology and the Canadian Museum of Civilization) Pacific Editions has gained an international reputation as a primary source of museum quality prints.
