Here is a comprehensive introduction to the most popular and refined of American furniture styles. Drawing on his extensive research and professional experience as a maker of reproduction furniture, Norman Vandal presents a well-rounded and authoritative look at the history, design and construction of Queen Anne furniture.
If you collect or just appreciate the Queen Anne style, you'll be inspired by the photos of beautiful furniture and enjoy learning about the evolution of the style from a craftsman's perspective. If you're a woodworker, you'll find extensive construction photos and 82 pages of measured drawings for chairs, tables and case furniture. With the in-depth information Vandal provides, you'll be able to build even the most challenging pieces.
