Book ID: 65216
The Arts and Crafts Movements in Dublin and Edinburgh 1885-1925. Irish Academic Press, 1998. Pp, 232. A fine bright copy in pictorial dust jacket.
This profusely illustrated volume is the first major study of Arts and Crafts design in these two great capital cities. It examines shared literary, formal and ideological links and values (strongly influenced by radical figures like Patrick Geddes, W.B. Yeats and George (AE) Russell), as well as differences, while exploring the ambivalent relationship each city enjoyed with its native cultural heritage and with England.
The text is a totally revised and expanded catalogue of the acclaimed exhibition curated by the authors for the 1985 Edinburgh International Festival.
