Pennsylvania German History & Art Books

This Lübeck Haus Bookstore catalogue page lists books for Pennsylvania German architecture, culture, cookbooks, Fraktur, traditional art books, Pennsylvania Dutch folk art, folklife, historical artifacts, and other important books.
The early settlers in Pennsylvania from German, Austria, Switzerland, and other German speaking lands were referred to as the Pennsylvania "Dutch". The Germans called themselves "Deutsch", and the English speaking people called the German speaking people, "Dutch", and the name stuck. The Pennsylvania German "Pennsylvania Deutsch" contributions to the development of Pennsylvania was enormous. Several books highlight their long-established, well-planned, and enduring Pennsylvania German farms. Several books cover the beautiful folk art productions which they made using folk art designs and Fraktur writing. This artwork was especially expressed in documentation used for marriage announcements, birth certificates, death certificates, bibles, special awards, as well as for other many useful forms and special artwork.
These books, handbooks, and reports are an invaluable resource for Pennsylvania German architecture researchers, historians, students of learning the language of the Pennsylvania German, (Dutch or Deitsch), Fraktur collectors and anyone with an interest in Pennsylvania-German culture, cooking, folklore, folklife, antiques or their culture.
These books are written in English, except in German where specified otherwise.
