Description


A handsome reproduction of one of the most remarkable notebooks of craftsmanship in North America. Henry Lapp, an Old Order Amish cabinetmaker and folk artist, made illustrations and watercolors of his furniture pieces to show to potential customers. His original notebook is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This reproduction features captions and descriptions, along with an introduction by Beatrice B. Garvan. The book is an exquisite gift for anyone interested in folk art, furniture, cabinetmakers, or the Amish. "It is as charming as Mr. Lapp was enterprising. The furniture designs shown in 47 color plates are simple, practical, and appealing." -- The New York Times
