I made this frames for my wife and daughters . The detail description of the making frames contains in the Darrel Pearts book “In the Greene and Greene style”. I used sapele and ebony . Finishing Varaghtane Stain Gel, oil and beeswax. I like Japanese and American blockprints . A long time I found high quality pictures (TIFF ) and some time ago I found its in the Library of Congress.
