Featured Book: Palekh
Palekh is a traditional Russian folk art using papier-mâché lacquer, usually in miniature, to adorn furniture and other household items.
Poetry and fairy tales appear in visual renderings with extraordinary detail on everyday items, a craft handed down since the 17th century. Anyone who loves myths and children's illustrators like Arthur Szyk should add this one to their library. We have a few gems on this craft right now, but if you want this one in particular, call or email the shop, or drop in to snag it!
