1 Review
The late 19th-century protest against machine-age artificiality which spawned the Arts and Crafts Movement in England, engendered a distinct American offshoot: the Craftsman, or Mission style. Gustav Stickley's handsome magazine "The Craftsman" (1901-16) became the voice of that style, seeking beauty and creativity in simplicity and organic harmony.

Another book, Building with Nature: Roots of the Arts & Crafts Home (Gibbs Smith, 2005) shows how Stickley took what he learned on his four month trip to California in 1904 and spread the word about simple arts & crafts style homes across the nation.
