Shaker design did not spring from an adherence to the dictates of fashion, or from the impetus to exploit a market, but from a religious philosophy that wholeheartedly rejected the values of the world at large. Shakerism was a divinely inspired experiment in communal living; almost by accident it generated a genre of designs which have since attained the status of ‘art objects’. Ultimately, Shakerism as a faith was to decline, but if left a legacy of objects that the Shaker craftsmen & women created. These artifacts have transcended time. Contents: The Gift to Be Simple; The Shaker Object; Shaker Architecture; The Spread of the Shakers Across America; Shaker Life, Work & Worship; & The Art of the Shakers. 100+ full-color photos.
