Description

Here is a refreshing new take on the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain and America – and a good general primer on the subject – covering a lot of territory. This book is the catalog to accompany an exhibition in 2019 at the University of Texas at Austin. The book charts the origins of the Arts and Crafts Movement in reformist ideals (e.g. Ruskin, Morris, Stickley), the intersection of Arts and Crafts with America’s commercial culture, and its ultimate effects on American households and everyday life. Chapters include: the Kelmscott Press and the modern popular book; selling the Arts and Crafts idea in America; the art that is life and commerce-Elbert Hubbard’s Roycroft; the Sears modern home; and designs for everyday-the Arts and Crafts legacy. The 12 scholarly essays are beautifully illustrated by many full color photographs and drawings.
