About this title


This book on the gravestone rubber's art was welcomed by critics in its hardcover edition:
"Old gravestone cutters are credited with developing one of America's first truly native art forms. This is a charming and informative hot-to book," says Chicago Tribune.
"Discusses in detail the four basic rubbing techniques, also presents a well-rounded picture of this art by including a brief account of early grave symbols...their meaning and significance. Those looking for a new and what can be a compelling hobby will find Ms. Jacob's book of special interest." - Antiques Journal.
"Jacobs treats her subject seriously, but not lugubriously." - B-O-M Club News.
