Summary

Summary

The clean, somewhat austere lines that characterize Arts and Crafts design are being copied and incorporated more than ever by furniture designers today. This comprehensive survey places the multi-faceted Art and Crafts Movement within its historical, cultural, and artistic context, with full coverage of major figures, their aims and ambitions, and the work they created. Hundreds of vivid illustrations bring the entire subject to life with examples of virtually every design area represented, from architecture and furniture, to lighting, glasswork, pottery, tile and graphic design.
