The photographs are pretty good quality despite their modest size, and the range of examples brought together is really impressive. In all honesty, just browsing through this book will give the reader a very rich and well-informed impression of the calibre and range of Arts and Crafts design. This book will be useful to collectors, art students, interior designers, practical design students in all media, and the general enthusiast. It would make an excellent gift.
A much larger book, with as immense a range of items but focusing on one of the greats, is Charles Rennie Mackintosh produced after a major retrospective at the Glasgow Museum
