Author Notes

Harriett and Bob Swedberg published their first book, Off Your Rocker, in 1976. Since then, they have written more than 20 books on subjects ranging from country furniture to antiqueing in England. When the Swedbergs research and write books they travel to various parts of the country photographing and pricing antiques. The Swedbergs have enjoyed sharing their extensive knowledge by teaching classes, conducting seminars, lecturing and exhibiting items at antique shows and antique centers
