. . . (She) brings to light in detail the close ties between England and Boston that gave the Boston movement its distinctive aura among American centers. . . . Recommended.
Style 1900 Magazine
This long-awaited study investigates the interrelationships between design critics and the craftspeople belonging to the Society of Arts and Crafts in turn-of-the-century Boston. . . .Though grounded in Boston, the discussion can be extrapolated to the entire movement, and Brandt brings her subject full circle with an epilogue covering the Arts and Crafts revival of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. This outstanding analysis and understandable presentation provides a sophisticated appreciation of the Arts and Crafts movement.

    Welcome essential reference for America's Arts and Crafts movement.

    Brandt is the preeminent authority for the origins and controlling influence out of Boston that guided America's Arts and Crafts movement. It is treated here with in-depth scholarship. My copy has numerous post-its noting her insights and factual information.
