Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This magnificent compendium is the first comprehensive exploration of the Arts and Crafts legacy in the Pacific Northwest. It traces the movement from its nineteenth century English beginnings to its flowering in Washington and Oregon through the 1920s and beyond, weaving a tale of idealism and devotion.

Included are public and private architecture, furniture, pottery and tile, metalworking, lighting, leaded and stained glass, jewelry, textiles, basketry and the influence of Native American arts, painting and printmaking, photography, graphic arts, and book design. The inspired handiwork of anonymous amateurs and significant regional artists alike yielded a remarkable variety of progressive architect-designed residences, bungalows for everyone, and all manner of artistic and practical furnishings and accessories.

Beautifully illustrated with photographs and period graphics, this groundbreaking volume is an authoritative reference, a provocative story, and an irresistible treasure trove for Arts and Crafts collectors and enthusiasts everywhere.

Review:

"They have told this tale as a regional one, but it can also be read as simply an American one, with more rain and taller trees." John Luke, American Bungalow

Review:

"A hefty 398-page reference with hundreds of photographs and period graphics that would appeal to Arts and Crafts aficionados as well as people who love regional history and old homes." Everett Herals

Book News Annotation:

Crater Lake Lodge and Paradise Inn are pictured as representative of the Arts and Crafts movement in the Pacific Northwest (though the absence of Timberline Lodge is curious). In what is presented as the first comprehensive exploration of the design movement's legacy in this region, Kreisman (architectural historian/preservation advocate) and Mason (museum and historical society consultant) trace its roots and impact in Oregon and Washington in the early 20th century. With the complement of ample period images, they discuss the influence of its hand craftsmanship "simple life" ethic on architecture, interior design, arts, crafts, and recent home building and restoration trends. The bibliography includes exhibition and product catalogs, trade journals, and manuscript collections as well as books and articles. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

Lawrence Kreisman, Hon. AIA Seattle, is program director of Historic Seattle, which produces an annual Bungalow Fair and Arts and Crafts lecture series. He has been recognized for significant work in bringing public attention to the Northwest's architectural heritage and its preservation through courses, tours, exhibits, lectures, articles, books, and program development. His publications include Apartments by Anhalt; The Stimson Legacy: Architecture in the Urban West; and Made to Last: Historic Preservation in Seattle and King County, as well as hundreds of design features in The Seattle Times Pacific Northwest Magazine. Kreisman holds Master's degrees in architecture from the University of Washington and in English literature from the University of Chicago. His lectures and tours on late nineteenth and early twentieth century design and architecture take place throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Glenn Mason, co-owner of Cultural Images, a museum and historical society consulting firm, is an avid enthusiast of the Arts and Crafts movement. While director of the Lane County Museum in Eugene, Oregon, and the Cheney Cowles Museum (now Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture) in Spokane, Washington, he mounted several Arts and Crafts exhibits, researched and spoke on the subject, and helped secure Arts and Crafts collections of regional and national significance.
