TOP 500 REVIEWERon 16 August 2014
Reasonably large format with a colour plate on every other page this is a good beginners guide to the subject, The author covers the precursors with the obsessions for japanese and gothic revival influences right up to the edge of the modernist movements like the Bauhaus. All the major names are covered plus a section on the American versions with the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright. Not just concentrating on the U.S. and U.K the likes of Klimt are illustrated here.
The tendency to allow fabrics, textiles and wallpaper designs is mercifully avoided but a page just about the Martin brothers with no illustration to accompany it is a repeated habit I did not care for.
A good overall beginners guide with an extensive bibliography for further research.

Although purchased second-hand, the quality of the book was excellent and delivery to Australia was very prompt. Makes an excellent introduction to the subject

This book does it all.
It covers the history of the Arts and Craft period as well as lots of information on the "movers and shakers" of the time i.e. Knox, Morris etc

Highly recommended
