Craftsman Homes: Architecture and Furnishings of the American Arts and Crafts Movement

Front Cover
Dover Publications, 1979 - Architecture - 205 pages
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.
