Seasoned collectors and recognized experts, the Rosenaks (The Museum of American Folk Art Encyclopedia of Twentieth Century Folk Art, Abbeville, 1991) have created this survey of 181 artists grouped in six regions. Entries on artists include biographical notes, collection tips, and lists of museums and galleries where one can see and buy their art. Included in each regional chapter is a selection of color plates and a museum and gallery guide. Following this main section of the book are essays concerning the evaluation, buying, and selling of folk art works and contemporary folk art at auction. This handy travel guide to collecting contemporary folk art will be of interest to collectors with big and small pocketbooks alike. For public libraries.?Judith Yankielun Lind, Roseland Free P.L., N.J.
