The photos in this book are great; the text is helpful too.

The book explains the wide diversification of the Arts & Crafts movement from the historic past to the revitalization of the Arts & Crafts movement today.

If you like this type of furniture, and you're technically inclined, it might also help getting a book that describes how this furniture is built.

As a librarian and a lover of all things relating to Arts & Crafts style, I recommend this book to anyone desiring a greater knowledge of this furniture's history and design evolution. With clear color photographs and just the right amount of text, this book illustrates the origins of Arts & Crafts furniture in England and its progression, first to our East Coast, and eventually Westward across America. In fact, my only 'complaint' about this book is that the photographs are good enough that they leave you wanting for more.

Because of the depth of information presented here, I would not say that this is a general interest read - rather this book is geared toward those seriously interested in the history of the Arts & Crafts movement and its recent revival.

The book provides an excellent introduction in the history of furniture at the end of the 19th century and the evolution of the Arts & Crafts movement. The nice thing about this book is that it's giving the larger context, showing the influence designers in England and continental Europe had on Arts & Crafts movement in America. The book has excellent pictures of representative furniture pieces.

Towards the end of the book, there's a small collection of contemporary furniture makers and designers that build classic pieces, or new ones inspired by the classic designs. You can google the name of the furniture makers to find showrooms and stores that carry their products, which is a very good way to start when you want to buy such furniture.

If you like this type of furniture, and you're technically inclined, it might also help getting a book that describes how this furniture is built. This helped me enormously to understand what is involved in producing good quality furniture.

This book is a treasure for the simple fact that it gives us a visual clue as to what the make up of a room is in an Arts and Crafts style home. It's invaluable to me to be able to see the total picture and juxtaposition of all the elements in different areas of a home - and in color to boot! As a maker of Stickley reproductions I think this book is wonderful, don't know how I got along without it.

Over the years I have been drawn to the Arts and Crafts furniture styles such as the Mission style, the Glasgow style (Charles Rennie Mackintosh) and the Prairie Style (Frank Lloyd Wright). I was a little concerned about buying this book, since it did not allow "a look inside". My concerns were wiped away once this book arrived. The authors have compiled the complete history of Arts and Crafts furniture. The book is very easy to read; it is informative; all photos are in color and very detailed; diagrams are easy to read and comprehend. All of my questions that have built up over the years were easily answered in this book. Questions such as, who started the Mission style? Where does Frank Lloyd Wright fit into the Arts & Crafts Furniture movement? The book explains the wide diversification of the Arts & Crafts movement from the historic past to the revitalization of the Arts & Crafts movement today. If I could give this book a rating of ten stars I would do it. Of all the books I have read and/or owned this book belongs to the top 5%. If you have an interest in the Arts & Crafts furniture movement, you will not be disappointed with purchasing this book.
