Abstract:

"Byrdcliffe was, and remains, a place of haunting beauty. One hundred years ago, it was established as an Arts and Crafts colony in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. Craftsmen, writers, and musicians came, lured by the atmosphere of creativity amid like-minded people. Furniture, pottery, paintings, metalwork, and textiles were all made there and the people themselves became an interwoven part of the fabric of the place. This is the story of the first years of the colony, the artists who visited, and the artistic community they fostered in Woodstock, New York."--BOOK JACKET.
