thrifted: International Arts & Crafts book

the lovely cover
as a predecessor of my favorite art movement, the short-lived yet flamboyant Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts has been close to my heart as well. the femininity and stylized figures are what drew me to this movement, as well as the craftsmanship of each work.

what a wonderful treat for me! i bought this copy of International Arts & Crafts and would you believe that i got this for only Php100 ($2.30)? it's not very old either, with a 2005 publishing date. i just love scavenging around bargain carts of practically any store. you never know what you might come across hidden beneath those piles of what-have-yous.   


  1. I love Arts and Crafts too! It's right up there with Art Deco for me.

  2. Arts & Crafts + Art Nouveau + Art Deco... Love them all!
    (I once got 2 great Dover books (Art Nouveau patterns and motifs) in a super-discounted bin at a bookstore...)

  3. i quite agree, all 3 are the best art movements in my opinion
