Book News Annotation:

Some 300 color photos presented in an oversize volume (9.25x12.25") showcase 16 restored homes built and decorated in the arts and crafts style. Coverage begins with exteriors and proceeds to porches, stonework, and the various rooms of the house. Then the focus shifts to the details of doors, stairs, built-ins, glass, lighting, and accessories. A brief introduction and light captioning are the only text. This is a highly visual presentation for designers, home owners, and crafts people looking for ideas and information about the style. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Tour sixteen beautifully restored homes built and decorated in the Arts and Craft style, an early twentieth century movement to counter the increasing urbanization and mechanization of human life. Nearly 300 color photos detail links between nature and human skill, and capture architectural elements of the Arts and Crafts bungalow. This book is a must have for Arts and Crafts followers and ideal for all woodworkers, glass workers, masons, and collectors, offering insight and design inspiration through images of built-in cabinets, stained glass windows, brick fireplaces, and antiques displays.
