Greene & Greene Design Elements for the Workshop, by Darrell Peart

This is quite a good book, focused on the furniture of the Greene brothers. Their style is distinctive, as indicated by the photo, right. You may need to enlarge the image to notice the ebony plugs.

I like that Peart shows how to construct some of the complex joints in this furniture. He is also an accomplished furniture maker, with interesting designs of his own, derived from the Greenes.
