About the book:

One of the most significant and far-reaching movements in American art, the Arts & Crafts movement transformed American attitudes toward design, the home, and the work process by emphasizing how to make objects and live with them. Decorative objects from the movement, an immensely popular era of American art, are much-sought-after collectibles.

This lavish, beautifully designed book, originally published in 1987 in conjunction with a landmark exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is the first to have interpreted the Arts & Crafts movement in America. With eight essays by distinguished scholars and more than 300 illustrations, the book serves as the classic reference on American design reform and celebrates the decorative arts and architecture of this important era. The works included are decorative objects such as furniture, glass, silver, ceramics, textiles, wallpaper, books, and architectural drawings. Collectors and anyone interested in the Arts & Crafts movement will be thrilled to see this classic book available again.
