Gimme Some Arts & Crafts!

Here's a very fun book we just got a small pile of-

"Historic Arts & Crafts Homes of Great Britain" by Brian D. Coleman, published by Gibbs Smith in 2005.

“Exquisitely photographed and produced, this volume tours ten magnificent British homes designed in the Arts and Crafts tradition. Red House, the only house that William Morris ever built (and that also inspired his design firm), is here, as is Hill House— family home to prominent Glasgow publisher Walter W. Blackie, designed by Scotland's Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Also included are Charleston, home to Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant; Kelmscott Manor, William Morris's idyllic country escape; and Edward Lutyens' eccentric medieval Castle Drogo”.

Hardcover. 10”x10”, 159 pages, color illustrations, dj. New. Published for $39.95. Available for a limited time for $20.00
