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(0xa7f9ef48) out of 5 stars The Arts and Crafts Movement and Fra Hubbard July 13 2016
By Edward A. Mainzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This volume was written in 1994 to accompany an exhibition on The Roycrofters produced by the University of Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery which subsequently went on tour. Authored by various hands, and well illustrated with both color images and reproductions of historical photographs, it still remains a useful volume for those interested in the American arts and crafts movement in general and Elbert Hubbard's Roycrofters in particular. In addition to a short introduction to Hubbard's fascinating life it includes separate sections discussing Roycrofter bookmaking, furniture production, copper work, leather work and art more generally. Each chapter has source notes and there is a general bibliography and a list of known Roycrofters; it is not indexed.

HASH(0xa7eb8570) 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.
