If your interest is in the textiles of the Arts and Crafts movement in Great Britain, this is the book for you. It is comprehensive in its exploration of the subject, from well-known designers as Charles Rennie Mackintosh and William Morris to dozens of lesser-known designers and craftspeople. Linda Parry, the author, is on the staff of the Victoria and Albert Museum. The majority of examples of textiles in black and white and color were taken from this museum. Parry covers the history of the movement and the work shown in London by the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society. At the end of the book is an extensive catalog of designers, craftsmen, institutions and firms. There is also a long bibliography of books and catalogs if you want to explore this subject in depth.
