Pennsylvania Folk Art Books And Fraktur Manuscripts

Welcome to our Lübeck Haus Bookstore catalogue page for books for Pennsylvania Folk Art And Fraktur books.
The American fraktur tradition began about 1740 in southeast Pennsylvania by the early German, Austrian, and Swiss settlers who brought this art form from their homelands in Europe. This art form quickly spread to other states, and remains popular even today. For centuries, these cherished hand-written and watercolor decorated paper manuscripts have embodied a richness of tradition and culture, blending descriptive text with bright colors and Pennsylvania Dutch (German)design. Having deep roots in medieval European decorated manuscript art, fraktur documents celebrate family events such as births, baptisms, and marriages among some of America's earliest immigrants of German and Swiss heritage.
These books will be of interest to historians, scholars,and everyone who appreciates hidden art treasures that lie at the heart of these fascinating manuscripts.
These German, Swiss, and Austrian settlers of Eastern Pennsylvania were often referred to and called by their English speaking neighbors as "Pennsylvanian Dutch".
