Arts & Crafts Companion by Pamela Todd

Book Description

A movement dedicated to the revival of traditional craftsmanship, Arts and Crafts was enthusiastically embraced by all those who had become disenchanted with shoddy mass-production at the turn of the 20th century. This comprehensive history of Arts and Crafts traces both the origins of the movement and examines the personalities behind it. Fields addressed include architecture, glass and lighting, ceramics, gardens, and furniture, and detailed studies of specific Arts and Crafts pieces are presented alongside more than 300 meticulously researched images. The achievements of such key exponents as the movement's founder, William Morris, as well as other noted contributors--among them Gustav Stickley, Edwin Lutyens, and Frank Lloyd Wright--are considered in detail, and information is provided on the distinguishing characteristics of each designer's contribution. This is a rich and invaluable survey, perfect for the collector, the student, or the admirer.
