This is the hardcover edition.

The Art that is Life was published in conjunction with an exhibition originated by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the first to synthesize the decorative arts and architecture of this period in America. Works include such objects as furniture, glass, silver, ceramics, textiles, wallpaper, books, and architectural drawings. With eight essays by distinguished scholars and more than 300 illustrations, this book serves not only as a classic reference of American design reform but also a celebtration of the era that so unified the ‘artful’ with the ‘useful.’ Readers will appreciate the current reawakening of interest in the Arts and Crafts movement, its influence on designers today, and the competition among museums and collectors to acquire the prize objects this era produced.
