This volume surveys the highly influential Arts and Crafts design movement which embraced architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics, metalwork, textiles and books in Britain, America and Europe. Although the styles adopted by the movement were diverse, its leading architects, artists and craftdesigners, including William Morris, Frank Lloyd Wright, Josef Hoffman and Eliel Saarinen, were united in promoting the moral superiority of "honest" design and natural materials in an industrial age. 167 illustrations
