Synopsis: The Hart's workshop in Chipping Campden - the sole survivor of C. R. Ashbee's Arts and Crafts Guild of Handicraft - evokes visions of its century-old origins so strongly that the casual visitor may think he has arrived in a museum. But the truth is that the eyes of the third and fourth generations of the Hart family, who now practise their craft here, are very firmly set on the future. The craftsmanship evident in the pieces of gold, silver, bronze and, these days, jewellery, which they create is, in many ways, timeless; but these precious objects could scarcely be made by hands which did not have a century of experience behind them. This book is a celebration of that hundred years experience as well as a glimpse into the future. With plenty of detailed history of the family and the business, the book will appeal to anyone who would like an insight into the creation of silverware with a worldwide reputation.

About the Author: Richard Russell became a printer as a boy in the Marlborough College Press, which was steeped in the Arts and Crafts tradition as a result of William Morris having been at the school. Morris has been his hero ever since. A large part of Richard's career was with the University Press, Oxford. He has lived locally for fifty years, having married into a Cotswold farming family.
