About this title


A historical survey of crafts in America. The book begins the story by looking at the American Arts and Crafts Movement as first seen in the domestic environment during the early years of this century. It presents an array of wood furniture, stained glass, ceramics, jewellery, embroidered textiles and silver and iron objects. Included are works by such masters as furniture maker Gustav Stickley and ceramist Adelaide Alsop Robineau, silversmiths Robert Jarvie and George Washington Maher, glass artists Frederick Carder and Louis Comfort Tiffany, architects Frank Lloyd Wright and the Greene brothers and many more. Many of the pieces were photographed especially for this book. Essays by noted experts in the field discuss particular crafts and illuminate the broader social and cultural implications of the American Arts and Crafts Movement.
