About the book:

Influenced by developments in Europe, American proponents in the late 19th and early 20th centuries successfully promoted the "minor arts" as fine art hand-wrought by individual craftsmen, extolling the virtue of everyday objects and a return to honest, simple materials and workmanship. The designs are, perhaps, the closest embodiment there is of "American style". Included are furniture, ceramics, metalwork, glass, books, drawings and textiles by Gustav Stickley, Greene & Greene, Frank Lloyd Wright, Tiffany Studios and many others. This book looks at their work.
