Book Description

July 15 1992
Arts and Crafts Design-the style characterized by clean lines and solid workmanship with quality materials-is enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Well-known designers include William Morris, Frank Lloyd Wright and Gustav Stickley, who produced furniture and architecture in the style. They are featured in this tribute to an enduring style, along with artists who designed and created ceramics, glass, textiles, wallpapers, jewellery and silverware. The origins of the Arts and Craft movement at the turn of the century and its evolution to the present-day are considered in the text, while over 140 glorious photographs showcase the special beauty and grace of the style. An invaluable and inspirational reference for decorators and collectors at all levels.

An arts and crafts website recommended this book as the place for beginners in the movement. Following their lead, we purchased the book and have not regretted it.
The advice is true. This is excellent background for the movement, giving it a skeleton which can be used to hang more and more on, including sources, wonderful photographical examples, and resources. We're finding it is desirable and so, so useful to restoring our bungalow to have a wealth of books on hand such as these to give ideas for restoration and decorating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dialog and Photographs Jan. 2 1999
Format:Hardcover
This is a comprehensive book that covers (in five good sized chapters) the origins and influences of the Arts & Crafts style, hallmarks of the style, furniture, objects and accents, and case studies. I am a woodworker and I use this book quite frequently for inspiration and reference. For those interested in this period I highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very strong four and a half stars! Feb. 17 2006
By Scott Pointon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am a librarian and a woodworker and thus have access and interest in many books on this subject. "In the Arts and Crafts Style" is a beautiful book that is deserved of much praise. The color photography is as plentiful as it is beautiful. I appreciate that the subject matter for this book does not seem to be drawn from the same dozen houses that so many others have used (As much as I like them, how many times can we look at the same pictures of the Gamble House, or Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio?). The text in this book is very well written and conveys clearly what is so special about the subject matter. I was also very impressed with the excellent resource list given at the end of the book.

If I had an axe to grind about this book it is that the best photographs of A&C furniture are not contained in the (relatively short) chapter on furniture, but rather they are scattered throughout other chapters. This is a minor irritation in an overwhelmingly well done book.

I highly recommend this book for any collection relating to historic homes, furniture / interior design, and lovers of the Arts & Crafts lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference on Arts & Crafts Style Jan. 20 2011
By SB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book, plus two others, as a primer on the Arts & Crafts/Mission style. I am building out my basement and wanted to use this style. I was interested particularly in the furniture, interior details (stair rails, windows, decorative wood, etc.) as well as paint colors. This book did not disappoint. There are many full color photos and excellent information on the creators of the style, the styles themselves, and the history of the style in America. I would higly recommend this book if you want to see fine examples as well as read about the movement.
