A book on Sam Maloof by Gene Sassee. 106 pages, 88 images, softcover.
In Maloof at 90: an American Woodworker, I set out to record the life of Sam Maloof as he entered into his 90s, a humble man who rose to greatness by elevating his work to the standard so eloquently stated by Martin Luther King Jr.
There is an emotional wonder that is inherent in everything Sam touched. Sam approached each project with an exacting eye for design and detail which took an inanimate piece of wood and imbued it with soul. By the way he practiced his craft he elevated common objects to objects of desire.
