A sense of innovation and understanding of the values of simplicity, harmony and unity permeated both architecture and the allied arts and crafts." "Professor Harriet Edquist traces the development of the movement from its origins, including key architects who introduced the theories and idioms of the British Arts and Crafts movement and transposed them to Australia. From remote government buildings to homesteads for the landed gentry, from the quintessentially Australian bungalow style to religious architecture, from garden design to furniture integral to its environment, and finally to a vision for the 'new city, ' we see the innovation and influence of the Arts and Crafts movement."--Jacket." ;
