Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume surveys the highly influential Arts and Crafts design movement - which embraced architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics, metalwork, textiles and books - in Britain, America and Europe. Although the styles adopted by the movement were diverse, its leading architects, artists and craft-designers, including William Morris, Frank Lloyd Wright, Josef Hoffman and Eliel Saarinen, were united in promoting the moral superiority of "honest" design and natural materials in an industrial age.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

"An exhilarating broad overview . . . wonderfully illustrated."  --The Observer
