simplicity, quiet good looks and honesty
of building. there is not any single
recognisable variety that represents

exotic and important, with rich
colours and styles, or homely and
plain, so long as it adhered to the
Arts and Crafts perfect of hand
craftsmanship. The craft workshops
and guilds, created in idealized
imitation in their medieval
counterparts, produced furnishings and
textiles, metalwork and ceramics
which raised the prestige of such
objects from minor household
articles to the ornamental arts.
Arts & Crafts sort is a richly
illustrated survey of this middle-class
revolution in aesthetic style, which
draws jointly its many different
strands and appears specifically at
how the fashion was once interpreted
internationally, all through Europe
and America.
