In 1901, Gustav Stickley created the first uniquely American style of furniture and home design—known as Craftsman. A leader of the Arts and Crafts movement in homebuilding and a major influence on Frank Lloyd Wright, Stickley created home designs that valued construction in harmony with its landscape: open floor plans, built-in storage, and natural lighting. In his lifetime, he designed at least 241 homes in this style and published more than 200 plans in his journal, The Craftsman.
Stickley remains one of the great names in design, and Craftsman Homes and Bungalows showcases his work in an affordable, attractive new edition. Featuring several hundred black-and-white photographs, line drawings, and sketches of cabins, cottages, and bungalows from concept to finished product, it presents easy-to-understand directions for both home construction and improvement. This new, all-encompassing volume will provide guidance and inspiration to everyone who wants to understand or reproduce the Stickley style.
