Appreciation for Shaker design has increased enormously in the last few decades. The useful, everyday objects that the Shakers made are prized for their simple beauty and superior workmanship. "Shaker Baskets and Poplarware" covers the utility baskets used in Shaker dwellings, workrooms, orchards, fields, and barns. "Fancy work" baskets made by the Shakers for sale commercially are also described and evaluated, as are tools for basketmaking. Paperback, 168 pages.
