I have been interested in this art movement for many years, and own several books on the subject. Euler's is by far my favorite. The pictures are gorgeous. The prose is eminently readable, and entertaining- which is rare in an art history book! The author clearly knows -and loves- her subject. I look forward to reading any further books Euler chooses to grace us with.

Arts and crafts movements are categorized and named to distinguish their history and evolution. "The Glascow Style" by Laura Euler focuses upon a decorative arts movement that is applied to a distinctive style associated with such diversity of materials and objects as textiles, dress, pottery, furniture, metalwork, jewelry, embroidery, book illustration, stained glass, and more. The values of these objects (always subject to their condition) can range from a few dollars for a book to millions of dollars for a desk. Profusely and handsomely illustrated with 530 color and black-white photographs, "The Glascow Style" also provides item values, as well as biographical information on many of the men and women whose artistic endeavors are collectively associated with the Glascow arts and crafts movement. With its informed and informative text so beautifully augmented with stunning, diverse, representative examples of the spectrum of objects decorated in this distinctive mode, "The Glascow Style" is a welcome and highly prized addition to personal, professional, community, and academic library Antiques and Collectibles reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

For anyone interested in the Arts & Crafts movement, especially English (and Scottish) Arts & Crafts, this is an essential addition to any library. Most people associate the Scottish School with Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and this book certainly covers his work, but unlike other books, this one explores many other designers, painters, illustrators, architects and others less well known. A perfect gift.

This beautiful book is worth buying for the pictures alone and it's also very informative. My interest in the decorative arts is only casual but I'm finding The Glasgow Style really absorbing because the author obviously loves the subject matter and has done a wonderful job of making her extensive knowledge accessible, entertaining, and instructive.
