This is the second volume of Arnold Schwartzman’s trilogy on the architecture of the late 19th and early 20th Century, in which he focuses on a group of British craftsmen who decided to turn their backs on the mass production of the Industrial Revolution to form a ‘Round Table’ in order to establish a means of returning to hand-crafted products.

William Morris, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and in America, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Greene and Greene were among these like-minded artisans who wished in essence to create a movement that embodied a vision and style that was a return to the Middle Ages.
