Craftsman Bungalows: Designs from the Pacific Northwest

Craftsman Bungalows: Designs from the Pacific Northwest Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the late nineteenth century to the early 1920s, the Arts and Crafts Movement spread with great popularity across America. With origins in Britain, the Craftsman style was a reaction against the excesses of the Victorian era. Craftsman bungalows were distinguished by their charming simplicity, cozy style, and storybook appeal. The name was derived from a popular magazine called The Craftsman, published by renowned furniture designer Gustav Stickley who sold plans for these homes designed for "beauty, convenience, and comfort."

This fascinating reprint of a rare architectural catalog is filled with photos of actual completed bungalows from the era, built prior to 1919. A mix of Spanish tile, stucco exteriors, wraparound porches, overhanging gables, handcrafted stone, and woodwork added up to many a homeowner's dream. Geared to the climate of the northern and eastern regions, each bungalow is an authentic Craftsman design and features a photo, description, floor plan, and original costs. A fascinating showcase of primary American architecture, Craftsman Bungalows is an indispensable resource for architects, builders, historians, and illustrators.

Book News Annotation:

Yoho and Merrit was an architectural firm in Seattle, and this is its catalogue for 1920, Craftsman Bungalows: A Collection of the Latest Designs. It is filled with photographs of their completed houses in the Craftsman style, which was introduced from England, swept across the US during the first decades of the 20th century, and was adapted to the cool and wet climate of the Pacific Northwest. A page of testimonials has been dropped in this facsimile reprint of the 1920 edition; the prices remain, but are no longer current. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
