Gustav Stickley, who was a master craftsman, furniture designer, architect and publisher, created the Arts & Crafts style of architecture during the first twenty years of the twentieth century which is known today as simply "Craftsman" or "Craftsman Homes."
The Craftsman plans offered the average American family a house that was truly a home, based on the ideals of beauty, simplicity, utility and organic harmony.
Gustav showed his designs and ideas through his magazine The Craftsman, publishing descriptions and drawings of homes beginning in 1901, and later on his two classic books: Craftsman Homes (1909) and More Craftsman Homes (1912).
Published monthly between Oct 1901 and Dec 1916, Gustav Stickley's The Craftsman was "the bible" of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the United States, which emphasized spare design, hand-crafting, and the importance of the individual craftsman.
The Craftsman demonstrates hundreds of Craftsman Home Design Plans on bungalows, cement houses, club houses, Craftsman homes, cottages, farm houses, plaster houses, rustic cabins, shingled houses, summer camp homes, summer homes, and so on.
The Craftsman also shows hundreds of Craftsman Home Furniture Designs on beds, benches, bookcases, cabinets, chairs, chests, closets, cupboards, desks, dressers, mantels, racks, screens, shelves, stools, tables, wardrobes, and so on.
The Craftsman magazine, a total of 31 volumes or 183 issues, remains one of the most complete resources for scholars, professionals, collectors and others interested in the Arts and Crafts Movement.
