A glance through the numerous illustrations to this book will give a better idea of its wide scope than any description could do. It will show how rich and how diverse English popular, or traditional, art has always been. There are illustrations all sorts from embroidery, horse brass, door-knocker, tombstone, snuff box and Staffordshire pot, to the popular print, toy theatre and weathervane. This is a serious study of the variety, origins and durability of popular art in England. It records the sense of humour of a people- the jug with a toad inside- as well as the individuality and character of the craftsmen and craftswomen. It illustrates the texture of popular history.
