Bungalows were the first houses available to the masses that were truly modern. But there was more to bungalows than that. The 'Arts & Crafts' advocates believed that design could change people's lives. They believed that the design of objects mattered, they believed that the built environment mattered, and they believed that people living in these houses, having these objects, raising their children there, would result in a wholesome life, upstanding citizens, and a peaceful and prosperous country. In 'Bungalow - An Ultimate Tour of Arts & Crafts Homes', author Jane Powell, dissects this home style and showcases eighty-five examples of the form across North America through the photography of Linda Svendsen.
