Gustav Stickley's The Craftsman Home collects all of Stickley's house designs, published in The Craftsman magazine between 1904 and 1916. All the designs are here in sequential order from 1 to 221, as well as commissions and special designs, exterior illustrations, floor plans, and fascinating historical photographs from many of the featured homes. Contemporary photographs of selected built houses, keyed by number to Stickley designs, take the reader's experience from paper dreams to modern reality.
Author Ray Stubblebine discusses Stickley's relationships with other architects and the cross-pollination that took place as they shared ideas in the magazine and even formed the Craftsman Home Builders Club. Gustav Stickley's The Craftsman Home presents valuable information owners and buyers of historic homes, architects, libraries, and historians need to help identify and preserve the homes that have survived.
