Toronto, ON M. F. Feheley Publishers 1977 0919880088 / 9780919880085 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket Illustrated by B&W and Color Photos 
DJ shows some wear to extremities and rubbing along spine. ; A bright solid, book, DJ in Mylar. ; 144 pages; "This is the first serious study done in Canada of Fraktur, a rich tradition of folk art having its beginnings in Medieval Europe and brought to North America by Germanic settlers fleeing religious persecution. The art of manuscript illumination attained its most exuberant form of expression among the Germanic communities of Pennsylvania in the 18th and 19th centuries. Michael Bird examines in detail the major teaching groups who practiced at that time and discusses the tradition as it appears in the three founding Mennonite communities in southern Ontario - the Niagara Peninsula, Markham Township and Waterloo County. Further aspects explored are the calligraphic and pictorial elements of Fraktur, its major decorative uses, and a consideration of Fraktur as religious art. With its 242 illustrations, many in full color, this book presents a treasury of beautiful images that will delight all those with an interest in art."

15 Laird, Ross Grain of Truth The Ancient Lessons of Craft
New York Walker & Company 2001 0802713890 / 9780802713896 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket Signed by Author
Signed by Author; Signed by Laird on title page. DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; 0.81 x 8.42 x 6.48 Inches; 187 pages; "Laird, a poet and Vancouver native, reflects on the rewards and frustrations of woodworking in eight pensive chapters ingrained with sensual, sinuous language and an intuitive understanding of the topic's metaphoric possibilities. Whether describing the construction of a wooden hand plane (toolmaking, Laird says, is a particular marker in the evolution from apprentice to craftsman) or the transformation of Brazilian purpleheart wood into a reliquary for his wife's grandmother's remains, Laird artfully conveys his appreciation for natural beauty and spontaneity, his reverence for hardwoods, tools and woodworking methods and his espousal of the Taoist principals that have sustained and nurtured his creative life. Indeed, his burnished prose style counterbalances what otherwise would have been an austere memoir of one man's discipline, dedication to craft and Rilke-like embrace of solitude through work. Because of his temperament, the ongoing restoration of his in-laws' summer house becomes a "sustained immersion in the life of a family"; the construction of a marimba for his two children in the chapter "Deep Water" becomes a "creative journey... to a shadowland of doubt, fear, frustration, and depression." Drawing on past experience, he explores the intersection of creativity and depression and offers insight into confronting its enigmatic challenges. Illustrated with Taoist trigraphs and photographs of his handiwork, this meditative book provides an inspiring glimpse into the creative process." Pub. Weekly

Toronto Clarke, Irwin & Co. Ltd. 1979 0772012555 / 9780772012555 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket Illustrated by Emily Carr 
Dust jacket has light soiling, light shelf wear. Blank bookplate has been pasted on half-title page. ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; Colour & B&W Plates; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 223 pages; Emily Carr, an skilled artist, buried herself in the spirit of the West Coast of Canada where she was born. "This book represents the culmination of Doris Shadbolt's long fascination with the work of Carr, a painter she views as one of the strongest and most individual of Canadian artists. It reflects more than a decade of meticulous research, and excerpts form Carr’s own prolific writings have been skillfully woven into the narrative, combining with exquisite reproductions of over 200 paintings, charcoals and drawings, two thirds of them in colour, almost all of them specially photographed for this book.Never swallowed by the mainstream in art. Emily Carr remained extraordinarily loyal to her inner vision. The world she created lingers persuasively in the Canadian psyche."
