Book: New Mexican Furniture 1600-1940
Hardcover - New condition, still has dust jacket, Protective archival plastic cover
By Lonn Taylor and Dessa Bokides
Hispanic furniture making utilized European tools and traditions, and followed a systematic code of design and construction, long established and protected in the artisan guild of Spain. Some of the prototypes of the trade were still being produced in New Mexico two and a half centuries later.
The most elegant and complete book on Spanish Colonial and Revival-period furniture in New Mexico, invaluable to designers and decorators, an art book and encyclopedic resource both. Contains nearly 300 photographs, many in full color, of furniture and its makers.
