Elizabeth Eaton Burton’s pioneering work in the arts and crafts world raised her to national prominence in the early 1900s. An eclectic look at life, culture, and art at the turn of the 20th century, her memoir, My Santa Barbara Scrap Book, is an engaging narrative that transports the reader to Santa Barbara’s past. Augmented with historical photos from the collections of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum and elsewhere, the book also includes explanatory sidebars and many never-before-publishers color images of her incredible work in leather, shell, and metal as well as her later work in watercolor and woodblock prints.
