It has long been time for a specialist work on Arts and Crafts furniture. Written by a recognised authority on the subject, this book examines the protagonists of the Movement and their furniture: the Guilds, the Cotswold School, the Glasgow designers, Heal, Liberty and the major commercial companies including Gordon Russell, as well as the principal American followers of the Movement. Starting with the seminal office of G.E. Street and ending with the effects on Ambrose Heal and Gordon Russell, the reader travels a colourful journey from the origins of the Movement, through its heyday, to its culmination. It is a tour that explains how the principles of the Arts and Crafts Movement became an enduring part of modern design.
To accompany the well-researched and detailed text, more than 250 exceptional illustrations show pieces of museum quality, many not seen before.
