Artists of Hand Crafted Furniture
by Maxine B. Rosenburg & George Ancona

Some artists paint pictures on canvas. Some mold sculptures of clay. Others weave rugs from fibers. Still others create furniture from wood. These furniture makers, devoted to furthering art and fine workmanship in daily living, produce originally designed, hand-made objects music stands, storage chests, rocking chairs.

In their first book in full color, and with their characteristic accuracy and warmth, the acclaimed author-photographer team of Maxine B. Rosenberg and George Ancona provide a close-up, personal look at four lively furniture makers in all stages of their fascinating work. From gathering ideas to selecting wood, from fitting joints to caring for tools, furniture making proves to be a unique, useful, satisfying art.
