Whether they are elaborately gilded or clean and classic, picture frames are often viewed as works of art. Now there's a fascinating, informative guide to collecting and restoring antique American frames. The book is divided chronologically into design periods, with detailed descriptions of styles and designs.

ANNOTATION A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
Proud as I was of the first edition, I'm thrilled with the second. The book compiles information that took me more than two decades to gather and presents it beautifully. The initial publication was evidence of the awareness and industry that my endeavors have created throughout the country, but now, with its added chapter on collectors and collections, the Guide is proof that period frames have finally come into their own - as both a transforming element for two-dimensional art, and as works of art in themselves. I urge one and all to purchase the Guide and become "expert" in identification. Also, I recommend The Art of the Frame, published in conjunction with an exhibition held in my gallery in 1988.
