Authentic Designs from the American Arts and Crafts Movement (Dover Pictorial Archives)by Carol Belanger Grafton
Synopses & Reviews
The aesthetic achievements of the American Arts and Crafts movement, which dominated decorative arts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, have become an increasingly popular subject of study and source of inspiration for contemporary artists and designers. This beautiful book presents over 400 copyright-free designs by 80 artists whose appealing and superbly finished works clearly reflect the ideals and sensibilities of the Arts and Crafts movement.
The designs have been reproduced directly from rare issues of Keramic Studio, a periodical of the era that was a major forum and showcase for the Arts and Crafts movement in America. Although most of these designs were originally created for use in pottery, a medium of consuming interest to artists and craftspersons at the turn of the century, all of them are easily adaptable to arts and crafts projects of many kinds.
Graphics designers and commercial artists will find these beautiful, copyright-free designs ideal to incorporate into a wide variety of projects. Potters, weavers, and those pursuing other arts and crafts will find in their sensuous elegance fresh inspiration for their own creative pursuits.
