The Shakers produced many incredible furniture objects that we continue to venerate today. For the woodworker the fascination is often rooted in the essential simplicity of the work. Interest in Shaker design is as strong today as it was when the first edition of this book was published in 1977, possibly stronger. This ongoing interest is the direct result of the inherent beauty of Shaker design--beauty that stems not only from form, but from superb workmanship, a commitment to utility and a total understanding of material.

A surprising number of elementary typo's for a book of this quality. I found 2 in the first 28 pages, and I didn't even read the two forwards!
