New Greene and Greene book

If have ever heard of Darrell Peart you will know he is master furniture bu ilder concentrating in the Greene and Greene style. Probably the preeminent expert in the field. He has really studied the history of their designs an d work and builds reproductions and his own G&G inspired designs, very true to the style. He has been given access to some of the best collections and allowed to study, measure and document them.
He has a new book coming out soon which covers specific design elements of the style and looks like it has a few plans included. You can pre-order sig ned copies and get them a few weeks before available publicly. Visit http:/ /furnituremaker.com/purchase.htm
I have no affiliation or stake in this project. I just heard about it in hi s newsletter. I've taken a class from Darrell and spoken with him a few tim es at events, etc. He is a really great guy and teacher and would freely sh are everything in this book if you had the time to ask him personally. I ju st wanted to pass this along to anyone who might have an interest in G&G.

Does he periodically work as a docent at Gamble House in Pasadena? We toured there this winter. One of the tours, not being offered the day we were there, was with a furniture maker.

Quite possible. He is very connected with all the sites like Gamble and get s to touch and play with all the stuff the rest of just get to gaze at. I k now he actually had one of their pieces xrayed to prove that the Greene's b uilders used screws to attach the cloud lifts. He has a photo of the xray i n one of his earlier books.
