Frame Bibliography

This book list, ordered alphabetically by author, is an attempt to produce as definitive as possible a bibliography of picture frames.

It is a collation of various lists of works about, or which reference, frames, or which deal with related arts, crafts or makers. It is based on the bibliographies published in A history of European picture frames and Frameworks, both 1996, which include books and articles published up to that date.  It is also greatly indebted to the online bibliography of the National Portrait Gallery (Annotated Bibliography of Frame Publications: ), which lists works from 1996 by nationality & subject. Other bibliographies used include that of the Institut National du Patrimoine (INP), and of Persée, as well as those of individuals such as Richard Christie and Timothy Holton (q.v online).
