Note de l'auteur: It's ba-a-ck! After an absence of over five years, The Folk Arts of Norway is available in a new expanded edition, the third. In this one I have added a chapter on the life and crafts of north Norway, specifically the counties of North Trondelag, Nordland, Troms, and Finnmark. It is an area that has received too little attention, even in Norway. The Sami (or Lapps) and their crafts are an important part of the new chapter, of special interest now that we find there are many people of Sami descent in the U. S. and Canada.
Since it was first published by the University of Wisconsin Press in 1953, followed by a paperback version by Dover Press in 1972, it has become the most recognized source of information on rural Norwegian handcrafts, including rosemaling, carving, metalwork, weaving, embroidery, and costumes. This latest edition adds bone and horn decoration, fur and skin work, pottery, and stamping.
For anyone with an interest in Norway's fascinating past, its rural life, and its rich craft traditions, it is pleasure reading. But it is also a useful research tool, with an extensive bibliography and index. There is also a foldout map of Norway!
