Kodansha International Ltd., Tokyo, New York, San Francisco, 1983, ISBN:0870115060 
MALOOF, Sam. Sam Maloof : Woodworker. Tokyo, New York, San Francisco : Kodansha International Ltd., (1983). First Edition. Pp (14),13-223,(1). Illustrated. 4to, reddish-brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "What if Picasso had been a chair maker and Stravinsky a designer of tables? What would have been the impact of such intense creative talent on twentieth-century furniture? Today there is a man with this quality of profound artistic vision andtalent who has devoted his life to making furniture. His name is Sam Maloo f, and this book is his life and work told in his own word What if Picasso had been a chair maker and Stravinsky a designer of tables? What would havebeen the impact of such intense creative talent on twentieth-century furni ture? Today there is a man with this quality of profound artistic vision and talent who has devoted his life to making furniture. His name is Sam Maloof, and this book is his life and work told in his own words. Sam Maloof started making furniture immediately after World War II, when there was very little demand for hand-made objects. His perseverance through 'years of difficulty is a testament to the depth of his love for wood and for working with it. Since childhood, Sam has also been in love with technique and has constantly developed his precise sense of form and design. These three loves-of wood, of making things, and of designbrought him to the world of furniture and eventually to an honored place among America's leading artistcraftsmen. As with true great art, everything Sam Maloof makes seems simple. His furniture has a clear rhythm and flow, a bright vitality that eludes analysis. All his furniture is functional: chairs are comfortable; tables, while sculptural, are still tables to be used; desks are custom-designed to meet the needs of each user. Though Maloof furniture designs are all intensely his own, they remain unassuming and natural. His work has the calm, sure quality that comes from technical mastery combined with a creative joy in finding ways to let wood speak. A first encounter with a piece of Maloof furniture is like meeting a friend from the past-the warmth of relationship is immediate and delightful. This warmth never pales. The qualities of his work are mirrored in the artist. Sam is open, direct, and gracious. He projects afeeling of affable dignity and goodwill, and he works with the ease and cl arity seen in his furniture. Work for him is not drudgery. It is a renewal,an affirmation. He and his wife, Alfreda, live in a meandering house that nestles in a lemon orchard at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains, near San Bernardino, California. Sam has been building and expanding the house for thirty years. It unfolds as a series of surprises, from Sam's workshop atone end to the new guestroom at the other. Every room contains the ceramic s, woodwork, textiles, baskets, Pictures, and other beautiful things that nourish the Maloofs and give them pleasure. Sam Maloof's technical mastery of woodworking is coupled with mature, strongly personal artistic expression. He has set a standard for his craft in North America and the world. Future generations of craftsmen will see him as one of the major artistic lightsof this century." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction (by Jonathan Fair banks). 1. Starting Out. 2. Sharing. 3.

Early imm igrants to Canada often arrived in their new home unprepared for the severity of the North American climate. The first Loyalist refugees and later Scottish, Irish, German, Polish and French-Canadian settlers brought relatively little bedding to protect themselves from the cold. they did bring, however, their homeland weaving and quilting traditions. While their husbands and fathers were clearing and cultivating the land, Upper Canadian women produced bedding to keep their families warm." - from the dustjacket. Contents:1.

117 MINNICH, Helen Benton NOMURA, Shojiro Japanese Costume and the Makers of Its Elegant Tradition. First Printing industjacket and slipcase
Charles E. Tuttle Co., Rutland, Vermont / Tokyo, Japan, 1963, 
MINNICH, Helen Benton. Japanese Costume and the Makers of Its Elegant Tradition. In collaboration with Shojiro Nomura. Rutland, Vermont / Tokyo, Japan: Charles E. Tuttle Cp., (91963). First Printing. Pp (4),[9]-374,(2), fold ing frontispiece. Illustrated. Index. Large 8vo, decorated purple and whitecloth, silver lettering to front board and spine, in cardboard slipcase wi th red and silver panels. ""The picture I would likw to paint is not just the histoty of Japanese costume but the panoramic human bacKground against which that history is traced. . . . My desire is to pass on to other Westerners a warmer understanding and appreciation of the history of the Japanese people as it has been woven and dyed in the brignt siiKen fabrics that tneyhave always produced so superlatively and worn so handsomely—and loved so well." In these words from her introductory chapter, the author of this unusual and splendidly illustrated book invites the reader to explore the world of Japan's textile arts and costume decoration - from its origins in legendary times, through its brilliant development in the intervening enturies to its emergence into the modern era. The book, which is the first in English to present the full sweep of Japanese achievement in the costume arts, is essentially the story of the kimono and its evolution, for (again in the worck of the author) "it is hard to think of any other costume which has sochallenged the creative artist, or of any nation where the artist has resp onded so sensitively." The presentation of this colorful record is accompanied by a generous selection of illustrations: 53 plates in full color, 119 in black and white, and 12 line drawings. Taken together, these constitute nothing less than a pageant of Japanese costume history, for they include not onlv pictures from contemporary sources—such as the picture scrolls and the woodblock prints—but also photographs of kimono masterpieces and representative textiles. In a word, the book is a story—a true story but not a textbook or simply a costume manual or merely a book about clothes. It is. rather, a book about the people who made the dotnes and wore them, and who created the elegant tradition that distinguishes this aspect of Japanese culture. At the same time it is a book in which the specialist in costume design and decoration—and no less the student of these arts—will find an abnnrtance of informative detail and undoubtedly a valuable source of inspiration."
