Product description

Embroidered textiles are the most personal and immediate art form practiced by the Arts & Crafts Movement (c. 1860-1910). This art from another time has its own story to tell. Some items are the humble workaday pieces for utility in the home, while others are priceless works of art. Whether you are a long time collector or have only recently become interested in the Arts & Crafts Movement, this guide will help you better understand the history behind such needlework. This book features over 380 beautiful photographs of the work of famous designers including William Morris and Gustav Stickley. You will see the English, the Scottish, and the American styles of Arts & Crafts needlework and come to understand their similarities and differences. This book will delight all connoisseurs of textiles as well as Arts & Crafts aficionados.
