"SHAKER SONGS. A CELEBRATION OF PEACE, HARMONY, AND SIMPLICITY" Edited by

beauty of Shaker craftsmanship and architecture was also reflected in
their music, which long played a central role in Shaker worship. This

Boston Camerata, and features more than 200 years of Shaker music in
beautifully and simply illustrated pages of scores and lyrics, as well as
explanatory text. Includes such favorites as "Simple Gifts," "Mother Ann's
Song," "Four Little Angels," "Consoling Dove," "Joyful Praises," and "O
Zion Arise." Hardcover. 7.5”x9”, 128 pages, color and b/w illustrations,

"THE ARTS AND CRAFTS COMPANION" by Pamela Todd. Published by the Bulfinch
Press: 2004. “As a revival of traditional craftsmanship in the wake of the
sweeping shift of manufacturing toward mass production, the Arts & Crafts
Movement evolved on both sides of the Atlantic, embraced by designers and
architects like Edwin Lutyens, Frank Lloyd Wright, William Morris, Charles
Rennie Mackintosh, Louis Tiffany, and Gustave Stickley. This book,
illustrated with 250 color and 50 black and white images, is a superb
reference, tracing the origins of the movement; the personalities behind
it and their distinctive designs; and the many aspects of the Arts &
Crafts style in architecture and interiors, pottery, glass, applied arts
and decoration, and the garden.” Hardcover. 10”x10.5”, 320 pages, loaded
with color and b/w illustrations, dj. New. Published at $45.00.

Publisher's Overstock Price- $19.95

"NEOCLASSICISM AND ROMANTICISM. ARCHITECTURE. SCULPTURE. PAINTING.
DRAWING" Edited by Rolf Toman. Published by Konemann: 2006. “Illustrated
with some 900 color photographs and reproductions, this volume explores
the complexities of Neoclassicism and Romanticism in architecture and art
through in-depth articles by eleven scholars, and reveals how these
seemingly antithetical styles are in fact closely related. Looking at the
period from the renewed interest in the art and architecture of classical
antiquity in the mid-18th century (following the excavations of
Herculaneum and Pompeii and the arrival of new architectural theories),
through the effusions of the mid-19th century, it includes the work of
such artists as Johann Heinrich Füssli, Eugène Delacroix, J.M.W. Turner,
William Blake, and Francisco de Goya.” Hardcover. 11”x12.5”, 520 pages,
profusely illustrated in color and b/w; dj. New.

Publisher's Special Promotional Price- $39.95
