Hamerton, Ian (ed.).
W.A.S. Benson. Arts and Crafts Luminary and Pioneer of Modern Design.

Woodbridge Antique Collector's Club: 2005.

"This is the first work devoted to the life and work of Arts & Crafts designer and architect William Arthur Smith Benson (1854-1924). Though best known for his daring and innovative work in the sphere of electric lighting at its very inception, Benson also turned his hand to interior design, metalware, and architecture. A great friend of both William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, Benson was a leading figure in the Arts & Crafts Movement, eventually taking over the helm of Morris & Co. Decorators Ltd. following William Morris' death. This extensively researched book discusses his career in architecture, furniture, interior design, lighting, and metalware".

Hardcover. 9.5"x12", 303 pages, hundreds of color and some black & white illustrations, dust jacket. New condition.
