Product description

Adrian Tinniswood explains the Arts and Crafts movement's international influence by exploring the design, decoration, furnishings, and gardens of town and country houses the world over. Chapters cover themes such as: William Morris and his disciples; houses built by architects for themselves; the distinctive American response to the Arts and Crafts style; and the movement's relationship with the disappearing rural community. The book includes a broad range of houses, including the Red House in Kent, England, that Philip Webb built for William Morris in 1859 and Frank Lloyd Wright's Storer House in Los Angeles, completed in the 1930s. Within each chapter, the author considers, alongside the houses, Arts and Crafts themes such as literature, magazines, gardens, and furniture.
