With over 100 colour photographs, Folk Furniture of Canada's Doukhobors, Hutterites, Mennonites and Ukrainians offers a stunning visual record of the culture and values of these four ethno-cultural groups. Authors John Fleming and Michael Rowan take an interpretive approach to the importance of folk furniture and its intimate ties to people's values and beliefs. Photographer James Chambers beautifully captures both representative and exceptional artifacts, from large furniture items such as storage chests, benches, cradles, and tables, to small kitchen items including spoons, breadboxes, and cookie cutters.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Valuable insights into four distinct cultural traditions with concise histories of each and how religion manifests itself in very appealing household articles and furniture. Worth a look, particularly if you're interested furniture, Canadian regional antiques or visual art.
