For lovers of Americana, for lovers of hearts and things antique and endearing, and for lovers - a celebration in 150 photographs, 120 in full color, of the heart motif in American folk art from 1660 to 1880. Here are hearts embellishing everything from a family tree to a face powder box, from samplers to scrimshaw, from weather vanes to valentines...the heart motif in American country furnishings, folk crafts, textiles, sculpture, kitchen implements and a countless variety of love tokens. Captions and commentary complete this beautiful album of folk hearts in seventeenth-, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century America, celebrating the heart and all its messages of true feeling - courage, friendliness, tender courtship, fidelity and romantic devotion.
