Decoration Day in the Mountains: Traditions of Cemetery Decoration in the Southern Appalachians
The University of North Carolina Press
Decoration Day is a late spring or summer tradition that involves cleaning a community cemetery, decorating it with flowers, holding a religious service in the cemetery, and having dinner on the grounds. These commemorations seem to predate the post-Civil War celebrations that ultimately gave us our national Memorial Day. Little has been written about this tradition, but it is still observed widely throughout the Upland South, from North ...

The best herb book! Covers all aspects1
Great ideas, the best recipes, and the decorating is exceptional. I planned my whole holiday party with this book! From start to finish the photos and the text give you all you will ever need to know about herbs and how to display and use them in cooking and decorating. I was honestly surprised that the content was so good. I own quite a few books on herbs and this is the only one I would ...
Interior Design and Decoration
really helpful textbook!
This book really helps me a lot in understanding the histury of furniture(I bought it as a textbook for my history of furniture classes). It covers the information well and one thing I really like is, there is a list of vocabularies related to the interior design, decoration, and furniture on couple pages at the back of the book! If I don't know a vocabulary, I don't need to figure it out through ...
Decorations in a Ruined Cemetery
John Gregory Brown
One of the best books I've read
I completely disagree with the Kirkus review.It would be nice if all books that were coming out today were as beautifully written, as innovative and as heartwarming--eventually--as this one. Oftentimes, you get a book that's been given outstanding reviews and it isn't worth a damn. This is quiet and new and seems to renew itself from one page to the next, getting better and better. It only ...
Essential Kitchens: The Back to Basics Guide to Home Design, Decoration & Furnishing
solid advice, must see
very much goes to the essence of kitchen design without going into too much theory / methodology.
Creative Wedding Decorations You Can Make
North Light Books
Offers nice suggestions for various wedding crafts.
The book has some neat and wonderful creations but deals primarily with silk flowers for the crafts and it doesn't fully offer explanations or detailed instructions on some of the crafts. Most arrangements or crafts are primarily traditional older ideas, nothing with a contemporary touch for the 90's.
The Decoration of Houses
Pforzheimer Bruce Rogers Collection
design reflection and illumination
Amidst today's seemingly endless supply of domestic guides and treatises on interior decoration, Edith Wharton might be surprised that her The Decoration of Houses (co-authored with architect Ogden Codman, Jr.) would still be as relevant and necessary as it is a century after its first publication. Long before "simplicity" and "classic" became catchwords for branding, Wharton took a public stand ...

Wallpaper in Interior Decoration
Better Wallpaper Books Available
In comparison with other wallpaper books I have, this book's illustrations were the same as you would see in other books; however, they were not as detailed. There are better wallpaper books.
The Lady of the Decoration
This is an EXACT reproduction of a book published before 1923. This IS NOT an OCR'd book with strange characters, introduced typographical errors, and jumbled words. This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. We believe this work is culturally important, and despite the imperfections, ...
Crazy About Cupcakes
The Perfect Cupcake Book
I was a beginner cupcake baker when I bought this book (only had experience with out-of-the-box baking) and am now experimenting with my own recipes! Directions are very clear and precise, and the ingredients and tools needed can all be found in your local supermarket or arts & crafts store. Perfect book for someone just getting into baking, or looking for new techniques or flavors to make edible ...
Time for Halloween Decorations (Schiffer Book for Collectors)
Claire M. Lavin
A Welcome Addition
I'm no hoity-toity Ivy League professor of Halloween literature or professional 'New York Times' book reviewer with a bloody Halloween ax to grind, but I am confident when I state that "Time for Halloween Decorations" would make an excellent addition to the Halloween shelf of anyone's holiday bookcase. No room on that bulging shelf? Throw out some of those dusty volumes of Satanic ritual and ...

Fun book for a season of fun, One of my favorite time of the year, and had fun with the information. Nice purchase, colorful and informative.
Form and Decoration
Harry N. Abrams
A good book with major flaws
The subject of the book is very neglected: hence the book is needed. Unfortunately it is not the ideal book. Its flaws: (1.)the illustrations are too few and too damn small: you need a magnifying glass to see some of them! (2.)The author never analyses the subject: he merely attempts to give an overview or description of thousands of discrete artifacts. What IS decorative art, anyway? (3.) ...
