Library Journal Review

The author of more than a dozen books, Todd (The Pre-Raphaelites at Home) has done a magnificent job of creating this sourcebook on the Arts & Crafts movement. Focusing closely on the evolution of this decorative style in both Europe and America, this book is equal parts encyclopedia, exhibition catalog, and history text. Todd begins with a chapter on the philosophy and historical background of the movement. Next is a glossary that offers a veritable who's who of the decorative arts of the period. The next nine chapters each focus on a different facet of Arts & Crafts style, including architecture, furniture, textiles, stained glass, gardens, and more. With 250 color and 50 black-and-white illustrations, this book is not only visually stunning but also a source of useful references, including lists of manufacturers and online resources. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries and for collectors looking for a strong sourcebook on this popular arts movement.-Sheila Devaney, Univ. of Georgia Lib., Athens (c) Copyright 2010.
