My third and latest book published on tramp art with more the 600 color images. It contains historical images and introduces newly discovered artists who made tramp art, complete with their known biographies. Tramp art which was created from society’s discard materials, primarily wooden cigar boxes and wooden crates, is the story of how the common man, unschooled in the arts took simple tools to carve a legacy from the heart. Engaging text tells the personal stories of theses tramp art creators. In a chapter named The Collectors Speak, collectors who cherish tramp art were given a forum to discuss their passion for the art form. Boxes, picture frames, miniature houses, and items of whimsy showcase the meticulous details of the art form. For anyone with a passion for folk art, this book will be a much treasured addition to their library.
