he Arts and Crafts Country House is a fascinating and beautifully illustrated survey of some of Britain's most important houses. The Arts and Crafts Movement produced some of our country's greatest works of design, architecture and decorative art. It grew out of a reaction against the Industrial Revolution in the late 1850s, inspired by an alternative vision of life based on the revival of traditional building crafts and the use of local materials. Country Life magazine, founded in 1897, championed the movement in the weekly articles it devoted to country houses, illustrated with specially commissioned photographs. In his stunning book, Clive Aslet draws upon this unique archive to provide a detailed survey of 25 major country houses, designed by the movement's foremost architects, including Lutyens, Webb, Williams-Ellis and Blow. He also shows how the Arts and Crafts tradition continues to influence architects today. The 22nd title in this acclaimed series, The Arts and Crafts Country House reveals the enduring legacy of an architectural ideal.
