Shedding new light on Prior's architecture, life, and scholarship, this comprehensive monograph gives him his deserved place in architectural history

Edward Schroder Prior designed the cathedral of the Arts and Crafts Movement (St Andrew's Church, Roker), perfected the popular butterfly plan in his houses, and published what is still the seminal work on medieval gothic art in England in 1900. Highly regarded by critics such as Ian Nairn, Prior is sometimes considered to have narrowly missed out on a place in the architectural pantheon of his age, alongside contemporaries such as Charles Voysey and William Lethaby. The result of extensive archival and field research, Edward Prior: Arts and Crafts Architect sheds new light on Prior's architecture, life, and scholarship. Extensively illustrated, it showcases Prior's work in color, including many of his architectural drawings and photographs of most of his extant buildings. Prior is the missing link of the Arts and Crafts Movement, in both a theoretical and a practical sense, as he was possibly the only practitioner who genuinely translated the artistic theories of Ruskin and Morris into architectural reality. He went on to found the School of Architecture at the University of Cambridge in 1912.

Book Description Crowood, 2015. 1-82. Condition: New. Described by Cook as 'the missing link of the Arts and Crafts Movement', Edward Prior (1852¿1932) was an 'artist-builder' who worked in traditional and new materials and vernacular styles, often in a radical way, and who rejected the use of contractors and middlemen, engaging directly with craftsmen. This richly illustrated study is based primarily on research into Prior's surviving and demolished buildings and unbuilt projects to explore his design intentions, philosophy and architectural legacy.
