Описание: From the late nineteenth century to the early 1920s, the Arts and Crafts Movement spread with great popularity across America. With origins in Britain, the Craftsman style was a reaction against the excesses of the Victorian era. Craftsman bungalows were distinguished by their charming simplicity, cozy style, and storybook appeal. The name was derived from a popular magazine called TheCraftsman, published by renowned furniture designer Gustav Stickley who sold plans for these homes designed for -beauty, convenience, and comfort.- This fascinating reprint of a rare architectural catalog is filled with photos of actual completed bungalows from the era, built prior to 1919. A mix of Spanish tile, stucco exteriors, wraparound porches, overhanging gables, handcrafted stone, and woodwork added up to many a homeowner's dream. Geared to the climate of the northern and eastern regions, each bungalow is an authentic Craftsman design and features a photo, description, floor plan, and original costs. A fascinating showcase of primary American architecture, Craftsman Bungalows is an indispensable resource for architects, builders, historians, and illustrators.

This is D. V. Thompson's definitive English translation of Il Libro dell'Arte, an intriguing guide to methods of painting, written in fifteenth-century Florence. Embodying the secrets and techniques of the great masters, it served as an art student's introduction to the ways of his craft. Anyone who has ever looked at a medieval painting and marveled at the brilliance of color and quality of surface that have endured for 500 years should find this fascinating reading. It describes such lost arts as gilding stone, making mosaics of crushed eggshell, fashioning saints' diadems, coloring parchment, making goat glue, and regulating your life in the interests of decorum -- which meant shunning women, the greatest cause of unsteady hands in artists. You are told how to make green drapery, black for monks' robes, trees and plants, oils, beards in fresco, and the proper proportions of a man's body. ("I will not tell you about the irrational animals because you will never discover any system of proportion in them.") So practical are the details that readers might be tempted to experiment with the methods given here for their own amusement and curiosity. Today artists are no longer interested in specific directions on keeping miniver tails from becoming moth-eaten. The Craftsman's Handbook, in which these are ordinary parts of the artist's work, appears quaint and na ve to us. And that is much of its charm. But when we remember the magnificent mosaics, paintings, and frescoes these methods produced, the book takes on an even greater value as a touchstone to another age. "Recommended to the student of art." -- Craft Horizons. "Obviously of great merit." -- Art Material Trade News. "Delightful flavor." -- New York Herald Tribune. Recommended in Harvard List of Great Books on Art, Shaw's List of Books for College Libraries.

"A fascinating study not only of the work of the 18th-century American artisan but of his place in pre-Revolutionary society." -- The New Yorker In colonial America, craftsmen comprised the largest segment of the population, after farmers. They were cabinetmakers, silversmiths, pewterers, printers, painters, engravers, blacksmiths, brass button-makers, shipwrights, hatters, shoemakers, and other artisans, and they manufactured the tools, clothing, household goods, and other essential products needed to sustain life and trade in the New World. In this superb study, a distinguished American historian examines the lives and work of American craftsmen in the years before the Revolution -- the golden age of colonial craftsmanship -- showing them at work, at play, at worship, at school, at home, competing in their trades, striving to get ahead, and playing a dynamic role as citizens in bringing about American independence. Natural resources, special crafts of the different colonies, and New World "marketing" of those crafts are closely studied. Students of American history, culture, and the arts and crafts will find this a richly rewarding study -- authoritative, well-researched, and highly readable. It is further enhanced with carefully chosen illustrations from Diderot's Encyclop die, the great 18th-century reference work on technology, whose detailed engravings accurately represent the crafts of the period.
