Canadian Folk Art to 1950 by John Fleming and Michael J. Rowan


An incredible book about Canadian folk art co-written by our uncle, Michael Rowan. How proud we are! Originally published in 2012 and now out of print, there are only a few left on the market. The photos in this book are incredible by award-winning photographer, James A. Chambers. We are very fortunate to have two copies, a used soft cover from a US library in very good condition. We also have a new hardcover, never opened. Check out the price on - over $600-$1,000! It is 600 pages and measures  22.86 x 3.81 x 22.86 cm. Love Canadian art, antiques, history? This is the book for you. 

Here's the description: Immerse yourself in more than 425 previously unpublished colour photographs of Canada's disappearing traditional folk art. The authors' discovery of distinctive objects from across Canada inspired them to re-classify folk art, and to analyze and interpret their examples in 17 thematic chapters. The "aesthetic of the everyday" of Canada's material heritage is presented through paintings and carvings, quilts and rugs, tables and trade signs-just to mention a few. These traditional art forms of diverse community groups express a decorative cultural identity, documented through the unique lens of photographer James A. Chambers. Historians, curators, collectors, designers, and dealers, as well as anyone who appreciates material culture, will want to have this collection in their libraries.
