About this title


Folk art proves that producing utilitarian objects can provide an opportunity for self-expression. From decoys to sea chests, folk art is not only rooted in the useful but in the realities of living. Some folk art makes daily chores more fun, while others, such as mourning art, help people face life's saddest occasions. This volume is an introduction for the novice and a treasure for the collector.

Giffen, of A Noble and Dignified Stream: The Piscataqua Region in the Colonial Revival, 1860 1930 (1992), which won the Ruth Emery Award for Nineteenth-Century Studies.
