These two works on Scottish designer-artist-architect Mackintosh complement each other nicely. By the curator of the University of Glasgow's Mackintosh Collection, Flowers highlights one of the more prominent motifs that runs throughout his prolific career, which includes architectural and interior design, textiles, and graphic works. The spectacular colorplates reveal his profound artistry, mastery of subject matter, and technique of design. Chapters focus on Mackintosh's ability as a master architectural draftsman and botanical illustrator, as well as his stylized plant forms and baskets of flowers. Addressing her subject more broadly, Wilhide (William Morris, LJ 2/1/92) devotes the opening section to Mackintosh's life, including the influence and contribution of his wife, Margaret Macdonald, and his work with the Glasgow School of Art, the Four, and the architectural firm of Honeyman, Keppie and Mackintosh. Section 2 focuses on the new Glasgow Style, frequently associated with Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movement, and Section 3 encompasses the art of space and Mackintosh's exceptional architectural projects and various interiors. Section 4 concentrates on the elements of his style, which featured sparsely arranged and furnished rooms, the use of the color white, stenciling, rigorous use of geometric shapes, and his most famous ebonized high-back chairs. The appendixes include a list of Mackintosh sites to visit in Scotland, England, and France and a list of sources of Mackintosh designs in both Europe and the United States. These two books provide welcome insight into the life and career of Mackintosh and are recommended for libraries emphasizing architecture and decorative arts.?Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ.

Gorgeous....Not just the usual famous architecture, but the total designer's equally functional yet festive interiors -- chairs, clocks, hat racks, lamp shades, even kitchen utensils. Awesome. New York Daily News --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
