The Arts & Crafts Movement in Europe & America : Design for the Modern World 1880-1920 Hardback
Edited by Wendy Kaplan
At the turn of the last century, the Arts and Crafts movement transformed not only how objects looked but also how people looked at objects.
It provided a framework for essential issues that are still debated today: the conflict between standardization and individuality, the question of whether a one-of-a-kind handcrafted object is superior to a mass-produced one, and the problem of defining what kind of design most benefits society. The book features masterworks by the best-known designers of the period, such as William Morris, M.
H. Baillie Scott, Henry Van de Velde, Peter Behrens, Josef Hoffmann, Eliel Saarinen, Greene and Greene, and Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as lesser-known examples that have never been displayed together before.
