As a movement dedicated to the revival of traditional craftsmanship following mass production of the mid-19th century, Arts & 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. This book 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. This has become one of the most beloved books on the subject of this highly collectible decorative style. From the Old House Journal Reference Library.
