Last weekend I attended a party in RI and I found myself emersed in this book for much of the time. I came home and ordered it right away. It is a beautiful image of post revolutionary America and this important art form. As someone who grew up in New England I loved this glimpse into the past. Ms. Eckert Brown's extensive research is evident, and the illustrations are wonderful. This is the quintessential book for anyone who loves stenciling, art and American history.
Amazing book! Full of detailed photos of historical buildings and homes. Beautiful examples of stencil patterns. Book is full of interesting information about the history of stenciling and the art of stenciling. I highly recommend this book for the historical home renovator.
