The Two Red Roses Foundation (TRRF) has been acquiring and assembling a library of books, journals, periodicals, and auction catalogues related to the American Arts & Crafts era for more than ten years. The entire collection will ultimately be housed and cared for in the upcoming Museum of the American Arts & Crafts Movement being built in St. Petersburg, Florida. The book collection will be made available to students, scholars, and those interested in researching subjects related to the period.

The foundation and its library seeks your support and welcomes your donations of materials that will enrich its existing collection and further this important educational endeavor. While the library interest in donations extends to all books from the period, especially those related to the following catagories:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • Architecture
  • Art History
  • Childrens' Books
  • Decorative Arts
  • Design
  • Fine Arts
  • Furniture
  • Glassmaking
  • Lighting
  • Metalwork
  • Photography
  • Printmaking
  • Pottery
  • Sculpture
  • Tile

In addition, we have developed a specific "wish-list" of titles that we are particularly interested in obtaining.

TRRF is a non for profit foundation and items donated entitle the donor to a tax deduction for the appraised market value of the gift. To make a donation, please contact us at
