From Booklist :

This prodigiously illustrated introduction to the Arts and Crafts movement, part of the DK Collector's Guide series, upholds the publisher's reputation for well-thought-out design and stellar photography. It begins with a quick, somewhat repetitious overview of the movement's beginnings in nineteenth-century Britain and the underlying philosophy of its founder, visionary William Morris, whose "sentimental longing for a preindustrial golden age of unhurried and scrupulous labor" served as part of his inspiration. What follows is a well-organized, carefully captioned picture catalog of Arts and Crafts guilds and designers, with highlights of their styles and photos of their furniture, jewelry, textiles, ceramics, metalware, and glass, wallpaper, and paper creations. Adding a sense of market value to each object are prices, keyed to a dealer or auction house that has or had the antique in its possession. An extensive glossary will help novices master important terms, and a directory of auction houses, dealers, and museums, including e-mail addresses, will guide those interested in the movement to more.
