This was a lucky find. Eskimo Diary is Greenlander Thomas Frederiksen's illustrated diary from his youth as a hunter and fisherman in the fifties and sixties. It was published in 1980. Each page presents a facsimile of a page from the diary with beautifully handwritten text in Kalaallisut as well as a painting depicting the events of the entry. The English translation is on the facing page. The paintings are charming, almost childlike in their simplicity yet having all the details necessary. In relating his day to day life, he also describes the fishing methods used as well as legends and history.

Fascinating, and lovely to look at. ( )
