Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Clark (fine arts, Elmira Coll.) and Thomas-Clark (registrar, Corning Museum of Glass) here showcase a seminal family in the history of American furniture design and decorating style. Along with Frank Lloyd Wright and Greene & Greene, the five Stickley brothers popularized the austere style of the Arts & Crafts movement in the early 20th century, producing high-quality designs that resembled the work of the Shakers. Gustav, the eldest, was also responsible for the publication of the Craftsman, a defining style and producer catalog of the movement. This extraordinary retrospective explores the genesis of the Arts & Crafts movement and the Stickley brothers' place in it while also examining the differences among the various brothers. Illustrated with line drawings, vignettes, and photographs, the volume brings the designs, furniture, various companies, and the men themselves into context. A triumph of strong text and well-chosen illustration, this volume stands with earlier volumes, such as David Cathers and Alexander Vertikoff's Stickley Style, as a fine exploration, and extension, of the topic. A short but adequate index is included. Recommended particularly for architecture and for home decoration collections.-Alex Hartmann, INFOPHILE, Williamsport, PA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

The Voice and the Players

During the latter part of the twentieth century, the name Stickley achieved mythic proportions in the American decorative arts. Particularly since the landmark Princeton exhibit on the Arts & Crafts movement in America in 1972, it has become legendary and influential in modern American design. A virtual boom in modern reproductions and imitations of Arts & Crafts objects and furniture has permeated the American environment. Scholarship and research into the period has produced a plethora of knowledge about the artists and artisans of the early twentieth century. But until now, no one work has covered the impact of all five Stickley brothers on creating an American style in the decorative arts.
