From the Publisher:

Athorough exploration ofthe celebratedmodern designer's life and work, considering everything from sketches to glasswork to fabrics, and even such novelties as a tea room menu and a grandfather clock essential for every design and decor collection Architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh is renowned for his architectural achievements on a public and domestic scale and hisinterior and furnituredesign portfolios. This book aims to review his work in context, and consider how his ideas can be interpreted. His handling of color, use of materials, and graphic approach to form are explored, and photographs show original designs and plans. Inspired by nature, fired by the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement, and rooted in the vernacular traditions of his native Scotland, Mackintosh's genius was to forge an entirely new style for a new age. Radical but intensely personal, his architecture, interiors, and furnishings retain all their essential vigor nearly a century after they were first conceived. This compelling study considers Mackintosh's sensitive handling of color, robust use of materials, and graphic approach to form. The abundance of photographs of original schemes still in existence provide direct inspiration. His items of furniture are icons of early modern design and suppliers are listed for those currently in production."
