Reference Library

As both a collector and a researcher, I have often wished there was one site where every book ever written on the Arts & Crafts movement was listed. Now that place exists. Together we can compile on this website a list of every book of interest to Arts & Crafts collectors. All you have to do is pull some of the books off your bookshelf (go for the less obvious ones - and check below for duplicate entries) and email me the title, author, publisher and most recent copyright date. I will sort them by category and list them here so that anytime you or anyone else wants to research anything relating to the Arts & Crafts movement, you will start your search here.

For the time being, we will omit those books written during the original Arts & Crafts movement, as well as articles which have appeared in our present-day Arts & Crafts magazines. Hopefully, those have already been catalogued. I'm sure their staffs will help us out with a direct link to those lists.

So, grab a book and send me an email at
