From the author of the article famous “Sleeping Beauty” post Mortem books Stanley Burns. Forgotten Marriage The Painted Tintype & The Decorative Frame this book is in excellent condition. Out of print and definitely a collectors item.

Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name that was mounted in 1993 in New York and is scheduled for display in museums in numerous cities during the next few years, including the Museum of American Folk Art in New York (whose director, Gerard C. Wertkin, supplies the foreword). The latter half of the book is a catalog to the exhibition; the first half is a thorough survey of the American portrait tradition, folk art and photography, the tintype, hand-colored photography, copy prints and enlargements, and the decorative frame. Also included is information on collecting, preserving, and evaluating photographic frames and a frame identification guide. A meticulously prepared volume infused with the author's love of the subject.
