As a movement dedicated to the revival of traditional craftsmanship following the early mass production of the mid-19th century, Arts and Crafts evolved on both sides of the Atlantic, and its style became instantly recognizable.

THE ARTS & CRAFTS COMPANION traces the origins of the movement; discusses the personalities involved, such as William Morris, Edwin Lutyens, and Frank Lloyd Wright; and includes comprehensive chapters devoted to all aspects of Arts and Crafts style-architecture, interiors, furniture, wallpaper, textiles, applied arts, lighting, tiles and ceramics, glass and pottery, metalwork, embroidery, and the garden.

Listings of manufacturers with illustrative samples, as well as an extensive source list, make this not only a beautiful volume for the casual admirer but an invaluable reference for the most ardent collector.
