Artists’ Handmade Houses, published by Abrams with text written by Michael Gotkin and photography by Don Freeman, is a collection of handcrafted homes constructed between the late-19th century and mid 20-th century by the finest artists and craftsmen in America. Don Freeman captures the intimacy of these homes and the attention paid to every minute detail, from door knobs to stairwells to the structure of the house itself. The photographs in this book record exactly how the artists left the spaces when they dies or moved away. Some of the homes featured have been awarded National Historic Landmark status and several are open to the public, while some have fallen into disrepair or are in the hands of new owners.

The dresser on the right was designed by Mercer for the room, and the pictures above it are from his extensive collection of prints, more than one thousand of which hang on the walls of Fonthill.
