Esherick, Maloof, and Nakashima: Homes of the Master Wood Artisans Reviews
Had always been a fan of the work of Sam Maloof while I was aware of Nakashima's original book
Wonderful book! It is not a new book, but has great pictures and reasonable commentary. A decent snapshot of each of the subject's work.
Great pictures, excellent printing and very extensive history of each man. It's not just a picture book, it's a very complete history of the lives and philosophies of three great masters of their art.
This is an absolutely gorgeous book with quality photos. If you love wood, I recommend you add this to your book collection.
Bought this for my husband and so he says he likes it! He works a lot so he hasn't been able to read it like he'd like but when he does get the time, it's hard for him to put it down.
Beautiful book! Wonderful information on the homes of three unique craftsmen. The photos accompanying the text are stunning!!!
A mind expanding book!!!!
Before this book, I'd enjoyed spotty access to these three houses and their contents. Nakashima's was the best documented in existing books, followed by Maloof, with Esherick's house a distant third. Now, with this book, there is grand access. But, as a friend used to say, idiosyncratically, it hurts my feelings. This is really too wonderful.
