Notes from the archive: Maxine Rosenberg and George Ancona have teamed up to bring their first book to a youthful audience. This close-up look into the work of four furniture makers provides insights to inspiration, quality of materials and tools for the production of handcrafted furniture. The overall effect is of care, passion, clever design in utility while explaining the challenges and limits of woodworking. One of the featured artists, Rosanne Somerson summarizes her materials and work, “I think of my furniture as my children. I want them to have the best of the old and new. I want them to be as wonderful as I can make them.”
