Summary

Summary

Simplicity, good taste, sincerity, usefulness, education, and beauty -- these are some of the ideals of the Arts & Crafts movement. Established well over a century ago, the movement continues to grow and flourish because of the enduring wisdom of many of its early practitioners. The insights of Frank Lloyd Wright, Irving Gill, Greene and Greene, Elbert Hubbard, Ernest Batchelder, Bernard Maybeck, Gustav Stickley, and many others are included in this book of ideals -- a wisdom that is real and lasting because it is born out of use and taste.
