Esherick, Maloof, and Nakashima: Homes of the Master Wood Artisans by Tina Skinner
Schiffer Publishing, 2009.
$49.99; 160 pp.
If you can’t visit the homes of Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, or Sam Maloof, this book, Esherick, Maloof, and Nakashima: Homes of the Master Wood Artisans by Tina Skinner, might be the next best thing. The book is chock full of large, color photos (by Steven Paul Whitsitt) showing details of the houses that might otherwise go unnoticed. For example, there is a close-up photo of the hand crafted windowsill over the kitchen sick at the Esherick home; hinges and latches crafted from wood at the Maloof home; and close-ups of door and drawer pulls from the Nakashima home. This is a pretty book and is filled with inspiration for today’s woodworkers. The book also includes some biographical info about each woodworker.
Lucky frank T is the winner. His comment was chosen at random.
