American Folk Marquetry: Masterpieces In Wood by Richard Mühlberger is the first volume to record the history of marquetry and the American masters who handed down the tradition from father to son. Marquetry is decorative work in which amazing puzzle-like patterns are formed by intricately cut and shaped wood chips or veneers that are glued in place to ornament the surfaces of furniture and personal objects. Richard Mühlberger, former director of Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA, has written this beautifully illustrated volume after years of research and collaboration with collectors Robert and Marjorie Hirschhorn. Mühlberger was a guest curator for the American Folk Art Museum. Measures: 9 3/8" x 10 13/16" x 11/16". Hardcover; 242 pages.
