THIS VINTAGE ISSUE OF THE HOUSE BEAUTIFUL
(October 1920) for its magical cover!
William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896)
the English textile designer, artist, writer, and socialist
associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and
the English Arts and Crafts Movement.
Morris experimented in self-publishing and
encouraged the creation of small presses in America
that published books, pamphlets, and magazines
to spread the gospel of liberated work.
In 1901, inspired by Morris, the New York based
Gustav Stickley founded the periodical known as
The Craftsman that began by expounding
the philosophy of the English Arts & Crafts movement.
As it evolved, the publication is credited with being
the leading voice of the Arts & Crafts movement in US.
I would love to get my hands on this CRAFTSMAN
