Briefly traces the history of the Shakers describe. Shaker Life Work and Art is a beautiful book I first saw acopy several years ago and was disappointed to learn that thehardcover version was out of print The book has short narrative sections that provide insight into Shaker history work and communal and spiritual life One section captures a typical day in the life of the Brethren and Sisters The enlarged font is easy on the eyes and the top of each narrative page is headed by the famous Shaker wall pegs The narrative sections are separated by numerous pages of high uality well captioned color photographs of Shaker crafts furniture and architecture Lots of beautiful pictures The Shakers legacy still seems to have a profound impact on our contemporary lives in spite of or perhaps because of the simplicity of their work and their unusual communal way of life Although this book does not present a comprehensive history of the Shakers it does an admirable job of providing an insight into the lives of these interesting people This book is deserving of any coffee table and should get a lot of attention in your household END
