Fabian:  The Pennsylvania-German Decorated Chest
In the field of art and antiques, few books survive the test of time to become regarded as "classics."  Monroe Fabian's 1978 edition of The Pennsylvania-German Decorated Chest is such a work.  With more that two hundred fifty illustrations, this book is a visual smorgasbord of decorated chests.  Now The Pennsylvania German Society and the Heritage Museum of Lancaster County are pleased to bring this classic back into print.  With a new forward and updated photography, including and expanded color section and several new examples, this new volume will be of interest to collectors, scholars, and all those who have a love of the richly decorated chests made by the Pennsylvania Germans.
