Quoting from the Preface. “In writing Telemark Techniques we are offering very complete and advanced instructions on how to do Norwegian Rosemaling and have zeroed in on the area of Norway called Telemark. In this book we hope to give concise and new insight into how the very old Telemark Style was accomplished”.

Excellent working photos show the artist’s hands painting and executing stroke styles, surface preparations, glazing and antiquing techniques, with 37 photos. All other chapters are likewise illustrated, 6 pages in full color show not only actual decorated boxes & plates, but also very clear color combinations with painted floral & scroll examples. There are 26 projects; full sized patterns for each piece and complete color-coded.
