Description - Arts and Crafts Architecture: 'Beauty's Awakening' by Julian Holder

The Arts and Crafts Movement produced some of the country's most popular, loved and recognisable buildings.

Of equal interest to those with a more informed interest, it will open your eyes to the richness and beauty of one of the most important artistic movements the British Isles ever produced.
