American Architectural Foundation
The American Architectural Foundation (AAF) was founded in 1943 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. The AAF is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to cultivating the public’s understanding of architecture and the human experience. The AAF initiates education and outreach efforts, which foster public participation in the design process, encourage public stewardship of America’s architectural heritage, and promotes alliances between architects and the communities in which they live and practice. Each year AAF is on the ground in more than 75 cities across the country, helping local leaders use design as a catalyst for innovation and action.
These frames are absolutely beautiful. They're well made, easy to open and close, and create a sleek, elegant display.
In fact, they're the reason I found misterart.com. I'd found them at a shop locally, but it's much more convenient (and cheaper, even with shipping) to get them here. I hope MrA never stops carrying them.
I was pleased by how well packed for shipment they have been in my orders so far, too. I'm confident that when I place orders for multiples the delivery folks can chuck them around and stomp on the boxes without the frames becoming damaged.
