The first book about Mark Lindquist's impact on the rise of woodworking from the studio craft movement to high art. Carefully researched and beautifully illustrated, this history reveals a clearer understanding of the art of woodturning and its current position in the United States artistic heritage. Built on the author's exclusive access to the reclusive Mark Lindquist, it features more than 250 photos from Lindquist's archives, many of historic and innovative pieces not seen before. Showing how the choices that the renowned woodturning artists Mel and Mark Lindquist made have rippled through time, and affect even beginning woodturners today, the detailed information, interviews, and insights here help us understand Mark Lindquist's legacy in moving woodturning and wood sculpture from craft fairs in the 1960s to art museums today.
