In England the Arts and Crafts influence upon house building was far-reaching between 1870 and 1914. The result was some superb buildings by key architects like Norman Shaw and Voysey, but also a wide range of others ranging from simple terraces to the finest detached houses of the period. Using both his own illustrations and color photographs, Trevor Yorke shows the distinctive features and details of genuine Arts & Crafts homes. There are chapters on the furnishings and fittings, including examples of furniture, wallpapers fabrics, and distinctive details like door handles, hinges and light fittings. This is a perfect book for those who want to learn more about the simplicity and elegance of the Arts and Crafts Styles. Full Color.
