Blackwell North Amer
As a movement dedicated to the revival of traditional craftsmanship following mass production of the mid-nineteenth century, Arts and Crafts evolved on both sides of the Atlantic with architects and designers such as Edwin Lutyens, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Gustav Stickley, and its style became instantly recognizable.
The Arts & Crafts Companion traces the origins of the movement; discusses the personalities behind it, and includes comprehensive chapters devoted to all aspects of Arts & Crafts style, from architecture and interiors to glass, pottery, embroidery, applied arts, and the Arts & Crafts garden.
Designers as well as scores of manufacturers are discussed in depth, with information on the distinguishing characteristics of each artist's work. Lavishly illustrated and with an extensive source list, this is not only a beautiful tome for the casual admirer but an invaluable reference for the most ardent collector.
