Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Arts and Crafts Movement was one of the most far-reaching and influential design movements of modern times. Arts and Crafts designers everywhere were inspired by a profound belief in social and industrial reform, the revival of handicrafts, a return to the simple life, and the improvement of art for everyday life. This attractive small-format book introduces the key characteristics of the movement in Britain, Europe, America, and Japan and shows how its ideas were disseminated around the world. Through images of some of the most innovative and appealing works by Arts and Crafts designers, from furniture and painting to textiles and jewelry, this indispensable introduction redefines and enlarges our understanding of this seminal movement.
