Just finished reading Basketry. The Shaker Tradition. This is a very informative, interesting book on the Shakers themselves as well as their highly skilled basketmaking techniques. John McGuire takes you through the history of the Shakers and also demonstrates the skill of making these baskets. Wish I found this book years ago.I learned so much. Being a self taught Basketmaker I greatly appreciate the photos and detailed instructions. Can’t wait to read more of his books.
