The text is informative and the pictures sharp, showing details very well. I'm so glad these pieces have been documented.
I gave this to my woodworker husband as a gift. He loved it as much as the first volume. I recommend both volumes.
A very well designed book that will enhance your knowledge of some of the finest hand made furniture by master craftsmen from about 1840 to the 1880's in the Lone Star State.The pictures and text by Taylor and Warren brings these objects to life in a factual and concise manner and is a great companion to their other "Texas Furniture, Volume One" released earlier in 2012. These two volumes will become the bible of any one who has an interest in Texas hand made furniture, just as their original book that was printed in the mid 1970's.
