Synopsis

The Arts and Crafts Movement by Elizabeth Cumming, Wendy Kaplan

This volume surveys the highly influential Arts and Crafts design movement--which embraced architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics, metalwork, textiles and books--in Britain, America and Europe. Although the styles adopted by the movement were diverse, its leading architects, artists and craft-designers, including William Morris, Frank Lloyd Wright, Josef Hoffman and Eliel Saarinen, were united in promoting the moral superiority of honest design and natural materials in an industrial age. 167 illus., 31 in color.
