The Arts & Crafts Movement is a fully illustrated history of the revolutionary movement that swept England, the United States and Europe from the middle of the 19th century.  It was a movement of disparate views:  for its early leading lights, William Morris and C.R. Ashbee, it was a nostalgic return to the guilds and handicrafts of medieval times; for Frank Lloyd Wright and the Bauhaus designers, it provided a direct inspiration to harness the more advanced technology and mass-production methods of an accelerating industrial age.  Yet, these thoughtful, often visionary architects, designers and craftsmen agreed on one principle:  that a well-designed environment would serve to improve the fabric of modern society for producers and consumers alike.

The Arts & Crafts Movement looks at its leading personalities, their creative output, and the philosophy behind their methods of production and design.
