Arts Crafts Ideals from the Author: Bruce Smith. Simplicity, good taste, sincerity, usefulness, education, and beauty -- these are some of the ideals of the Arts & Crafts movement. Established well over a century ago, the movement continues to grow and flourish because of the enduring wisdom of many of its early practitioners. The insights of Frank Lloyd Wright, Irving Gill, Greene and Greene, Elbert Hubbard, Ernest Batchelder, Bernard Maybeck, Gustav Stickley, and many others are included in this book of ideals -- a wisdom that is real and lasting because it is born out of use and taste.

Miller S Arts Crafts from the Author: Judith Miller. '...one of the most friendly, easygoing and instructive books on the design movement' Chicago Tribune Arts & Crafts is one of the most influential design movements of all time, beginning in the late 19th century and still being explored by designers today. The Arts & Crafts ethos - rejecting mass production and industrialization in favour of individualism, simplicity, honest craftsmanship, respect for materials and good design - had a massive impact on the design of the early 20th century and transformed design sensibilities globally. This invaluable guide covers furniture, ceramics, silver and metalware, glass, textiles, jewellery, books and posters, and includes fascinating profiles of key designers such as William Morris, the Stickleys, Liberty & Co, Tiffany Studios, George Ohr, Rookwood and many more. It comes with a pictorial design directory, price ranges and a wealth of essential information for collectors and anyone wishing to follow William Morris's golden rule of Arts & Crafts: 'Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.'

The Japanese Bath from the Author: Bruce Smith. In the West, a bath is a place one goes to cleanse the body. In Japan, one goes there to cleanse the soul. Bathing in Japan is about much more than cleanliness: it is about family and community. It is about being alone and contemplative, time to watch the moon rise above the garden. Along with sixty full-color illustrations of the light and airy baths themselves, The Japanese Bath, delves into the aesthetic of bathing Japanese style and the innate beauty of the steps surrounding the process. The authors explain how to create a Japanese bath in your own home. A Zen meditation, the Japanese bath, indeed, cleanses the soul, and one emerges refreshed, renewed, and serene.
