Bucks County Fraktur.

The book's essays, contributed by the leading authorities on this folk art form, touch on the spiritual, educational, aesthetic, and economic aspects of fraktur and consider the role played by itinerant artists, extended communities, and group migrations in transmitting the fraktur tradition.".
