Description

This is the first comprehensive exploration of the Arts and Crafts legacy in the Pacific Northwest. It traces the movement from its nineteenth-century English beginnings to its flowering in Washington and Oregon through the 1920s and beyond. You will meet the architects, artists, craftspeople and entrepreneurs in Seattle, Spokane, Portland, and smaller communities throughout the region in their own words in journal entries, letters, articles and promotional materials of the period. Included are public and private architecture, furniture, pottery and tile, metalwork lighting, leaded and stained glass, jewelry, textiles, basketry and the influence of Native American arts, painting and printmaking, photography, graphic arts, and book design. Beautifully illustrated with nearly 400 photographs and period graphics.
