A new book from Assouline Publishing was released in February 2015 featuring selections from the Museum’s collection of Shaker objects. Shaker: Function, Purity, Perfection is designed as an accompaniment to the all-Shaker show at the European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht, the Netherlands, which will be held March 13 – 22.

In addition to exquisite new photography, the 144-page Shaker includes essays by renowned designer Sir Terence Conran, Shaker Museum President David Stocks, and the Museum’s Director of Collections and Research, Jerry Grant.
