Joy in Labour: 19th-Century Craft Revival

Beginning in Victorian Britain, cradle of the Industrial Revolution, Beth Wees explores the roots of the movement and the role of such figures as John Ruskin and William Morris in reviving handcraftmanship after a century of economic and social upheaval. Among the British designers discussed are C. R. Ashbee and his Guild of Handicraft, and Archibald Knox, whose work for Liberty & Co. brought him international acclaim.
