Format: Paperback
A fantastic book of little known facts on a wide range of aspects of the Roycroft Campus. It is particularly valuable for its details on folks associated with the Roycroft enterprise, including pieces written by or about those who actually experienced it during the Roycroft's heyday. Also, there are some rare images of people, places, and things. One really gets a realistic sense on how the Roycroft Campus operated, from all of it's glory to some of the associated warts. The only qualm is that this book could do with a good update. An absolute must for anyone really interested in anything Roycroftie.

HASH(0xa3245150) out of 5 stars Quality style furniture Jan. 8 2011
By topgrain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Reading about the Roycrofter furniture design and crafting, reminds us why some utilitarian pieces become valuable heirlooms and most just disposable expenses. Not only the designs creating a style of a period but the careful quality of the construction create utilitarian pieces that last forever and grow in appeal and appreciation. It also reminds us that it makes economic sense to look for these qualities when purchasing pieces for use because they are likely to last much longer than the mass produced pieces that seem cheaper but which are not sustainable or a good buy. There are more and more quality pieces available today following the Hubbard, Hitchcock, Chippendale, Shaker, Mooberry, examples.
