Edited by Cory M. Amsler. "Richly and profusely illustrated, this volume offers a stunning visual record of various fraktur forms, while also referencing the social and cultural milieu in which they were created. The book's essays, contributed by the leading authorities on this folk art form, touch on the spiritual, educational, aesthetic, and economic aspects of fraktur and consider the role played by itinerant artists, extended communities, and group migrations in transmitting the fraktur tradition." - the publisher.
