Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis delightful book, amply illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, captures the significant role such traditional arts as basketmaking, needlework, and decoy carving continue to play in the daily life of many Wisconsinites. Several chapters by folklorists provide a context for understanding the ways folk artists use their work to connect the past and present, express ethnic identity, celebrate community, and live creatively off the land.
