Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Hewitt (architect and writer) explores the thinking and history behind the creation of Craftsman Farms, a group of buildings in New York. Stickley's youth and education, the development of his utopian ideals, their roots in the work of Carlyle, Ruskin, and William Morris, and the art communes of the US are explored at length. The remainder of the work is an analysis of Stickley's activities as an architect supplemented with many plans and photographs, mainly in somewhat grainy b&w. Annotation c.
