From Library Journal
For over 100 years, the majority of North American homes have been built using wooden framing. This technique is strong, conserves materials, and allows great design flexibility.

Readers for whom this book is intended aren't going to build an entire house; they are homeowners who want to move, remove, or install a wall or create built-in storage. Peters covers tool-use, materials, methods of work, and demolition in easily understood text supplemented with numerous color photographs. Thallon, a professor of architecture, takes frame construction to the next level, showing how to build a house's entire shell from the foundation to the...


Timber Framing for the Rest of Us
Robert L. Roy

Apr 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Many natural building methods rely upon the use of post and beam frame structures that are then in-filled with straw, cob, cordwood, or more conventional wall materials. But traditional timber framing employs the use of finely crafted jointing and wooden pegs, requiring a high degree of craftsmanship and training, as well as much time and expense. However, there is another way . . .Timber Framing for the Rest of Us describes the timber framing methods used by most contractors, farmers and owner-builders-methods that use modern metal fasteners, special screws and common sense building principles to accomplish the same goal in much less time. And while there are many good books on traditional timber framing, this is the first to describe in depth these more common fastening methods. The book includes everything an...

Don't Think of an Elephant!: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate: The Essential Guide for Progressives
George Lakoff
1931498717
September 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In the first of his three debates with George W. Bush, 2004 presidential candidate John Kerry argued against the war in Iraq not by directly condemning it but by citing the various ways in which airport and commercial shipping security had been jeopardized due to the war's sizable price tag. In so doing, he re-framed the war issue to his advantage while avoiding discussing it in the global terrorism terms favored by President Bush. One possible reason for this tactic could have been that Kerry familiarized himself with the influential linguist George Lakoff, who argues in Don't Think of an Elephant that much of the success the Republican Party can be attributed to a persistent ability to control the language of key issues and thus position themselves in favorable terms to voters. While Democrats may have valid arguments,...

Framing the Early Middle Ages : Europe and the Mediterranean, 400-800
Chris Wickham
019926449X
December 8, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The Roman empire tends to be seen as a whole whereas the early middle ages tends to be seen as a collection of regional histories, roughly corresponding to the land-areas of modern nation states. As a result, early medieval history is much more fragmented, and there have been few convincing
syntheses of socio-economic change in the post-Roman world since the 1930s. In recent decades, the rise of early medieval archaeology has also transformed our source-base, but this has not been adequately integrated into analyses of documentary history in almost any country.

In Framing the Early Middle Ages Chris Wickham aims at integrating documentary and archaeological evidence together, and also, above all, at creating a comparative history of the period 400-800, by means of systematic comparative analyses of each of...

From Library Journal
"A well-framed picture on which thought and skill have been lavished should have double the sensual impact of a picture neatly boxed by a competent local framer," writes MacNamara. This beautifully illustrated manual emphasizes more the baroque than the basics of frame design and construction, covering such topics as moulding and mitre cutting for all mouldings; gesso, finishes, and gilding; and making oval, box, floating, tray, lunette, and Georgian print frames. This work was first published in Great Britain in 1986 and has not been "translated" for the American reader. Although recommended tools and materials are undoubtedly available in the United States, brand names may be unfamiliar. This aside, the author provides information on the reproduction and repair of antique and ornamented frames that is hard to...

Framing America: A Social History of American Art
Frances K. Pohl
0500283346
February 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Even if the ultimate outcome of the culture wars is still in some dispute, it is clear that revisiting art's "greatest hits," from America or anywhere else, is not sufficient for a basic understanding of art history. Framing America's focus is determinedly and liberatingly inclusive, showing how popular and vernacular arts have had just as great cultural and inspirational impact as the work of trained artists. Pohl, professor of art history at Pomona College, proves her case again and again with revealing juxtapositions and inspired close readings, from the objects plundered by Cort‚s to those fabricated by Jeff Koons. Native art, folk art and "Outsider" art, as well as many previously neglected female artists and artists of color are present in Pohl's narrative, never as victims of special pleading but as...

Although only one of the four chapters in The Art of Framing focuses on the actual craft of decorating frames, serious crafters and anyone interested in the use of framable objects in home decor should consider investing in this deluxe volume. More than 250 color photos document the history and art of framing, wonderful ways to create effective displays of framed items in the home, and how to decorate frames and mats with specialized treatments (faux finishes, gilding, craquelure, veneers) and decorative effects (stenciling, combing, painted motifs). The section on framing objects and ephemera offers unique ideas that crafters can adapt to show off their other creations.

Rob Roy, Director, Earthwood Building School, October 1999
Thank you for A Timber Framer's Workshop. I have been wanting to add a book like this to Earthwood's Book Catalog for years. Other books in the field are either glossy coffee table fare (pretty to look at, but lacking in hard-core info) or they are not particularly user-friendly. It's great to see a timber framing book which is logically organized for easy extraction of the essential information. We are pleased to add your crisply written textbook to our list.

Back Home Magazine, Sept/Oct 1999
Among owner-builders, the traditional timber frame has been held as a pinnacle of achievement--for its rich history, unsurpassed beauty, and the sense of accomplishment it can offer. As founder and director of Fox Maple School of Traditional...
