Simply put, since it's publication as two volumes in the 1970s this has been the reference source on Greene and Greene architecture and furniture designs. The depth of coverage is extraordinary. Buy the other big beautiful picture books for the glossy photos (including one by Makinson) but this is the source that *makes sense* of the Greene's true legacy. If you want to go beyond the superficial, buy this book.

One of the best reviews of the ever popular Arts and Crafts style of architecture and design. The color photographs are plentiful and make you want to get in your car and visit each one. Visually the book is stunning.

But, I also found it to be very readable. It is crammed with information, all of it interesting and insightful.

A perfect book for anyone who is even the slightest bit interested in the Arts and Crafts movement!

This is a great book to have for any woodworker especially if you are a fan of Greene & Greene designs. The book was shipped as advertised and received in the condition as advertised. I have become a fan of used books especially since this was received in very good condition. Thank you for your great customer service.

I am interested in Greene and Greene because I want to make furniture and fixtures in their style. I was hoping the section on furniture would be more detailed and complete than it was. For example, I need to make a fireplace mantle in a Greene and Greene style. There were maybe 3 fireplace mantles in the book, all stone and none really in what I would call their style. Now maybe they didn't really focus on fireplaces or introduce their style in that element of their houses but I was hoping for more. If I wanted to know more about the brothers and how they got where they are, where they lived, what their families were like, their troubles and challenges, then I might have appreciated this book more. But what I wanted was more of what the title promised....Greene and Greene Furniture.
