- Publisher out of stock
From the 1890s until the outbreak of World War I, C F A Voysey (1857-1914) was one of the most successful and renowned British Arts and Crafts architects. His elegant, white-rendered houses with stone window dressings and sweeping green-slate roofs combined clarity with a sensual appreciation of natural materials. A designer of all things domestic, as well as an architect, he was often involved in every aspect of a house's interior from wallpaper, curtains and furniture to fire grates. Moreover, the fluid curves of his decorative designs and the elongated simplicity of his furniture prove him to be a vital historical link between the Arts and Crafts and the Modern movements.
The first definitive account of Voysey's architectural career, this book combines contemporary sources - photographs, quotations, original wallpaper designs and watercolour perspectives - with specially commissioned photography of his houses.
