Author: Kevin P. Rodel and Jonathan Binzen

Hard Cover, 9.5"x11", 234 pages

Unlike the great furniture designs of the past, Arts & Crafts does not have a set of visual signatures that are easily identified. The designers of the Arts and Crafts movement, whether wroking in the United Kingdom, Europe, or North American, shared design principles and philosophies, yet they created furniture that is widely divers in style. This book, the first to look at the entire range of Arts and Crafts furniture, shows that Arts and Crafts style is much more than Stickly and Mission. And while the historical Arts and Crafts movement ended in the early 20th century, since its revival in the 1970s, it is very much alive today and practiced by contemporary craftsmen.

This is a beautifully illustrated book that celebrates the arts and crafts style.
