Product Description

From the Back Cover

Gustav Stickley (1858 1942) was one of the leading lights of the Arts and Crafts movement in America, an organized effort which sought beauty in simple organic design. His magazine, " The Craftsman, " was a major forum for the movement's ideas and concepts ideas which today are enjoying a renaissance in the design community.
The present publication features 36 articles that appeared in "The Craftsman "between 1903 and 1916. Included are graphic descriptions of 59 "bungalows" (Most of which were actually spacious, year-round homes), floor plans for 35 dwellings, and many sketches or photographs of houses in landscaped settings. "
"Characterized by its functional simplicity and integrated with the outdoor environment, the Craftsman home was typically composed of locally obtainable materials. A few of the most modest homes according to the magazine could even be constructed by persons with a minimum of masonry and carpentry experience. Interiors reflected the simple lines of the exteriors and generally included an ample fireplace (often of fieldstone construction), fireside benches, built-in bookcases and sideboards, plus walls, floors, and ceiling beams decorated preferably in colors that would harmonize with the structure's natural surroundings.
This inexpensive volume of selected "Craftsman" articles provides collectors of Americana with a fascinating glimpse of an influential and thoroughly American style of architectural design and construction. "Craftsman Bungalows" will be welcomed as a primary source of information and ideas by architects, students, and historians of architecture, preservationists, restorers anyone interested in the Arts and Crafts movement in America.
Dover (1988) republication of 36 articles from" The Craftsman" magazine, 1903 1916."

Format: Paperback
This is a great reference for preservationists attempting to restore or furnish a home in the bungalow style. Architects may also find it to be an interesting reference. The volume includes original floor plans and photos of homes designed in the workshop of Stickley and included in his Craftsman magazine. The original commentary on the houses is quite interesting -- if not amusing -- providing information on the social context of the houses design. The various photos and descriptions of houses from the era are excellent resources for anyone furnishing a Craftsman home or bungalow.

HASH(0x95bff2a0) out of 5 stars Enlightening and enjoyable! 5 Sept. 2001
By Bon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book, aside from the introduction, is comprised of reprints of articles, with photos and blueprints, on bungalows originally featured in the magazine "The Craftsman" from 1903 through 1916. Although only a couple of the homes described therein were actually designed by Stickley, the whole book was a delight. In their day, the cost to build these homes ranged from $2000 to a whopping $4000! The homes are from a simpler time, when closets were tiny and bathrooms were few, but the woodwork and stonework are inspiring. Important features of these homes include use of materials indigenous to the area so the home harmonizes with its surroundings, living porches, sleeping porches, fireplaces, and open floorplans. Not only is this book a delightful trip through the history of this style of home, it is also quite educational and contains many timeless ideas which would could be incorporated beautifully into today's homes as well.

HASH(0x95be2c60) out of 5 stars Good Reference.. 11 April 2000
By Michael J. Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was a good reference for those looking to restore their Arts & Crafts, or Craftsman style home. We utilized this book to assist our architect in the design and final detailed drawings. It was worth the price.

HASH(0x95bff924) out of 5 stars Craftsman Bungalows : 59 Homes from the Craftsman by Gustav 14 Jun. 2001
By Terrill D. Horgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a Professional Interior Designer enamoured with Craftsman style homes I use this book as a resource almost daily. It provides inspiration for details that give period charm yet are very practical in todays interiors. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to organize and unclutter their home and add charm and create value while doing so. Craftsman details have roots in Asian and Shaker periods when life was less cluttered. The built-in millwork allows us to conceal the electronics required in this day and age and provide us with a more peaceful view of life.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a reprint of a book and catalog of home plans. It doesn't really contain any information - just repros of black and white line drawings. If that's what you're looking for, then this is the book for you.
