"The photographs in this book are really beautiful, and many of them are full page or even two page spreads, which is great because it shows the gorgeous textures, colors and wear in each primitive piece. I've not seen any photographs before that really do justice to the primitive style like this book does.
I have not read all the text yet as I just got my copy, but what I've read has been well-written and interesting. It will give anybody a good understanding of what primitives are and how they can be incorporated into any home, even a more contemporary one. My wife and I have been adding primitive pieces to our own home in a rather random fashion, and this book gives us ideas for blending future pieces into our décor.
I would highly recommend this book to anybody who is interested in primitives, folk art and home design, or who just wants an attractive and well-designed coffee table book."
