The full-length biography of the outspoken leader of the Arts and Crafts Movement During an intense period of technological innovation early in this century, a movement dedicated to simple living began to take shape. An unknown cabinetmaker, Gustav Stickley, became the most vocal spokesperson in America for this quirky revolution in aesthetics known as the Arts and Crafts Movement. This book traces Stickley's wide-ranging artistic career that sought to integrate social theory, political commitment, and aesthetic design. Stickley believed utility, simplicity, and beauty—exemplified in high quality craftsmanship—were the keys to an ideal life, and thousands of Americans bought both the product and the notion. Stickley's is a story of a movement that exerted tremendous influence on furniture, pottery, metalwork, jewelry, bookbinding, leatherwork, and architecture. But his story is also one of classic collision, when the ideals of a simple life clash with those of a complex fate. Includes rare photographs of Stickley's works Features Stickley's own renderings for his early designs BARRY SANDERS (HOMETOWN?) is Professor of English and the History of Ideas at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. He is the author of A is for Ox and co-author of ABC: The Alphabetization of the Popular Mind and The Sacred Paw: The Bear in Nature, Myth, and Literature.

WE have selected for presentation here what we consider the best of the houses de signed in The Craftsman Workshops and published in THE CRAFTSMAN during the past five years. Brought together in this way into a closely related group, these designs serve to show the development of the Craftsman idea of home building, decoration and furnishing, and to make plain the fundamental principles which underlie the planning of every Craftsman house. These principles are simplicity, durability, fitness for the life that is to be lived in the house and harmony with its natural surroundings. Given these things, the beauty and comfort of the home environment develops as naturally as a flowering plant from the root.
