By Peasant TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
This stubby little volume is a sourcebook of design; from jewellery through furniture and ceramics to architecture. The layout is unusual, and the first section is titled "How to use this book". After a brief introduction, the objects are classified under the slightly eccentric headings of "Movement overview", "Society", "Places", "Influences" and "Techniques". I'm not entirely sure how all this works - the objects don't seemed especially relevant to the headings - but there are ample cross-references and a good index, so it doesn't really matter. The text fills in the background for each item and is easy to follow but - be warned - in TINY PRINT! It breaks my heart to give this book less than 5 stars, but if you have any trouble with small print this will drive you mad! Do "Click to look inside" before you buy; remember this is a book just over 6 inches square.

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

Fab little book. Initially disappointed by it's size BUT actually it's come into it's own as small enough to pop in your bag. Size isn't everything this little book is full of clear information.

As an Arts and Cafts obsessive, I was delighted with this little book. Laid out with one item/designer per page, it is easy to dip into and find what you are looking for. Highly recomended
