About This Item

Toronto: M.F. Feheley Publishers Ltd, 1977. HC. good w/good dustjacket (hardcover). 242 ill, many in color. ISBN 0919880088 The first serious study done in Canada of Fraktur, a rich tradition of folk art having its beginnings in Medieval Europe and brought to North America by Germanic settlers fleeing religious persecution. The art of manuscript illumination attained its most exuberant form of expression among the Germanic communities of Pennsylvania in the 18th and 19th centuries. Michael Bird examines in detail the major teaching groups who practised at that time and discusses the tradition as it appears in the three founding Mennonite communities in southern Ontario-the Niagara Peninsula, Markham Township and Waterloo County. 144pp.
