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 since 2006. 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 TRRF and its library seek your support and welcome your donations of materials that will enrich its existing collection and further its important educational objective. The library's interest in donations extends to all books and other library materials from the period, especially those related to the following categories:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • Architecture
  • Art History
  • Childrens' Illustrated 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 nonprofit private foundation (501(c)(3)) and items accepted for donation will generally entitle the donor to a tax deduction for the appraised market value of the gift. To propose a donation, please contact us at
