Bill Reid Collected

This selected chronology of Bill Reid's works features many of his iconic sculptures.


In this third instalment of the Collected series, the work of Bill Reid is showcased with beautiful photographs of his many sculptures, carvings, jewellery and paintings inspired by the culture and themes of his Haida Gwaii heritage.

Over his lifetime, Bill Reid created many historic pieces of art including the large bronze sculpture The Spirit of Haida Gwaii, nicknamed the Jade Canoe and displayed at the Vancouver International Airport, and The Raven and the First Men, a yellow cedar carving. Both are featured on the Canadian $20 bill. In addition to the immense praise for his artwork, Reid received the National Aboriginal Achievement Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1994. He continued to create stunning sculptures up until his death in 1998.

Bill Reid Collected features the largest chronological collection of memorable works of Reidís career in full-colour photographs and images to date. Along with an introductory essay by Dr. Martine J. Reid, this collection pays tribute to one of Canada's most renowned First Nations artists.
