An in-depth comprehensive study on an important form of American folk art named Tramp Art. Illustrated with over 400 color photographs this book begins to dispel the romantic myth that this craft was produced solely in anonymity. Made primarily from discarded cigar boxes and crate wood, combined with the use of simple tools, these craftsmen produced items from small boxes to full size furniture. With chapters relating to the craft, the materials, and the makers this illustrated study provides a valuable reference for collectors, dealers, and others interested in this folk art form produced layer by layer, one notch at a time. With value index.
