This outstanding book is certain to be the essential reference work on Canadian country furniture for decades to come. Folk-art authority Michael Bird's painstakingly researched - but lively - text provides a fresh, well-balanced view of popular furniture forms and regional styles from the Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, Ontario, and the Western Provinces, from 1675 to 1950. Over seven hundred photographs, both black and white and full colour, of carefully selected pieces illustrate the remarkable variety and richness of Canada's country furniture heritage, including previously undocumented styles produced by such vital ethnic communities as the Hutterites, Mennonites, and Doukhobors. The reader will also find some of the finest examples of carved, cut-out, and painted furniture from individual makers across Canada.
