"Presents more than two hundred examples of American folk art and decorative arts created in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Drawn from the extraordinary Jane Katcher Collection, the book features familiar expressions of Americana -- portraits and carvings, quilts and needlework, weathervanes and whirligigs, family records and calligraphy, mocha ware and spatter ware, furniture, baskets, and toys -- as well as the unexpected -- valentines, friendship albums, and keepsakes woven from the hair of loved ones." (dj) With many essays by a variety of experts. Followed by Volume II, published in 2011.
