The Arts & Crafts House
Chapters cover such themes as William Morris and his disciples; house built by architects for themselves; the distinctive American response to the Arts and Crafts style; and the movement's relationships with the disappearing rural community. The book surveys a broad range of houses, including the Red House in Kent, England that Philip Webb built for William Morris in 1859, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Storer House in Los Angeles, completed in the 1930s."--BOOK JACKET.
