BOOK REVIEW FOR
WELSH FURNITURE 1250-1950 :
A CULTURAL HISTORY OF CRAFTSMANSHIP AND DESIGN
BY RICHARD BEBB
taken from: www.welshfurniture.com
"This massive and comprehensive work, beautifully illustrated and carefully researched, has been long needed and eagerly awaited. With these volumes Richard Bebb has single-handedly... redefined how we look at the whole subject.
Welsh Furniture 1250 - 1950 is a veritable tour de force. It is a social history of Wales over seven centuries, as seen through Welsh furniture and the people who ordered it, made it, bought it and used it. The numerous illustrations, mostly in colour, are magnificent, and many have never been published before... It is a seminal work that will change the way we look at our furniture, and it will long remain the standard reference work on the subject.
It represents a massive contribution to Welsh culture and history... This book really does illuminate the Welsh tradition."
