This pioneer work presents the rich and diverse decorative arts produced by the distinctive Mennonite communities in Europe, Pa., and Canada over a 300-year period. Hess identifies a host of newly recognized Mennonite artisans of traditional textiles and quilts, furniture, clocks, wooden boxes and carvings, metal, pottery, and Fraktur. These colorful folk items are carefully identified and displayed in hundreds of color images. (160pp. illus. hardcover. Schiffer Books, 2001.)
