First published by Gustav Stickley in 1904, this is a rare and important contemporary explanation of the American Arts and Crafts Movement.
This facsimile was originally produced by John Crosby Freeman of the American Life Foundation in 1982. The text by Gustav Stickley sets forth his philosophy of art, architecture, and interior design and decoration, enabling a greater understanding of the man and his life’s work. The influence of Harvey Ellis on Gustav Stickley’s early works can be seen in many of the furniture sketches and room schemes. This book is a primary source and a must-have reference for serious students of the American Arts and Crafts Movement.
