W. R. Lethaby - Edited by Sylvia Backemeyer; Theresa Gronberg;

Lund Humphries, 1984, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the cover and spine.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “This exhibition is a unique and long-overdue tribute to our first Principal, W. R. Lethaby — the forceful disciple of Pugin, Ruskin and William Morris. We aim to present Lethaby in his many roles of architect, lover of craftsmanship, designer and educationalist. His ideas were not always immediately accepted in this country, but ironically, as in our own times, this was not so abroad. Particularly in Germany, his many writings and methods influenced the development of functionalism at the Bauhaus and as a consequence much of what we now accept as the ‘norm’ in the education of artists, craftworkers and designers.”
