Item Description
The Pennsylvania Dutch are noted for the beautifully designed and hand-lettered documents known as fraktur. These include birth and marriage certificates, family trees, bookplates, awards, and house blessings. Leading fraktur artist Ruthanne Hartung adapts the craft to modern tastes and needs in this practical how-to book, with information on tools, step-by-step instructions, ideas for design, lettering and coloring techniques, and a variety of projects. An assortment of traditional patterns to apply to personal frakturs are included.

About the Author:
Ruthanne Hartung lives in Reading, Pennsylvania, and has been creating frakturs for more than thirty years. She is a juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and has been selected as one of the top 200 traditional American craftsmen by Early American Life magazine.
