For centuries, Inuit and their ancestors have been building beautiful rock structures known as "inuksuit" across the Arctic and sub-Arctic. But such monuments are not limited to the Inuit culture, and in fact "tukiliit" --the Inuktitut term for "all" meaningful stone objects--are found all over the world. "Tukiliit" ventures to Iceland, India, the Faroe Islands, and the Utah desert to document a range of inuksuk-like figures. It features ninety stunning images of these unique objects, both ancient and contemporary, alongside Norman Hallendy's thoughtful insights into what inuksuit are, why the Inuit build them, and what they can tell us about life and death in the Far North.
