Abstract:

A leading figure in the British Arts and Crafts movement, Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941) could easily have made a career out of pattern design alone, for his ingenious textiles and wall coverings in fresh, clear colors won him international claim. By the mid-1890s, however, he also was hailed as one of Britain's most innovative architects. In this book, the author traces Voysey's extraordinary creative output through his professional career while painting a vivid picture of Voysey, the man.
