Mitchell has done agreat job by gathering all this data and turning it into a thoroughbred classic on antique picture frames.Academic quality could be compared to Framing in the Golden Age but lacks the in depth detail of that great book.
Was hoping for a less dry text and more photos.
Terrific book in an area of study that has too few. Paul Mitchell and Lynn Roberts are great scholars of European frames, this book is a must for the library of anyone seriously interested in frames.
Fabulous. Beautifully printed and excellent text.
I was looking forwards this book, hoping to see lavish illustrations, and comprehensive review of the histoty of picture frames.Imagine my disappointment to see black and white sketches, and some colorless illustrations! The print is so small that it is a strain to read it. The nomenclature is for professionals, and no explanations for the lay reader, no glossary, and unfortunately it is a technical and boring book.
