The publication of this book documents an unprecedented moment in Maine art history: the collaboration among several museums to form a Folk Art exhibition trail. Many of the artworks contained in these pages are typical of folk art forms found elsewhere in the United States: quilts, painted furniture, family records, pottery, portraits and landscapes. Others are particular to Maine's maritime culture, manifesting an abiding relationship with activities such as lumbering, shipbuilding, seafaring, trading and fishing. Color photographs throughout. hardcover. 143 pgs.
