Good historical data, short on details
on January 6, 2013
I am interested in Greene and Greene because I want to make furniture and fixtures in their style. I was hoping the section on furniture would be more detailed and complete than it was. For example, I need to make a fireplace mantle in a Greene and Greene style. There were maybe 3 fireplace mantles in the book, all stone and none really in what I would call their style. Now maybe they didn't really focus on fireplaces or introduce their style in that element of their houses but I was hoping for more. If I wanted to know more about the brothers and how they got where they are, where they lived, what their families were like, their troubles and challenges, then I might have appreciated this book more. But what I wanted was more of what the title promised....Greene and Greene Furniture.
