Book Signing - By Author David Cathers
December 6th, 4-7PM at Dalton's
I have some very exciting news. The well known
author and Arts and Crafts historian David Cathers has completed
his monograph on Gustav Stickley. I had the opportunity to receive
and read a review copy. David creates a narrative time line that
flows smoothly through the life and work of Gustav Stickley.
His research has illuminated the individual designers that were
employed by Stickley and assigns furniture designs to these personalities.
For a long time Harvey Ellis was the single genius that stood
out at the Craftsman. Now we have several others work to study.
The publisher, Phaidon, did a superb job at layout and the book
is printed on nice heavy stock. If you can not be at the book
signing I would be happy to have one signed and hold it for you,
give me a call.
