The Craftsman magazine 1901-1916

Full facsimile copies of the Craftsman magazine edited by Gustav Stickley.

Hosted at the Digital Library for the Decorative Arts and Material Culture at the University of Wisconsin.

Reading these magazines gave me a good glimpse into the lifestyle and philosophy of the Craftsman movement.
The magazines explore home and building, arts and crafts, gardening and landscaping. They contain patterns and plans for homes, furniture and decorative arts.

    You've done it again, Meggiecat. You always post such interesting items to share. I live in a craftsman bungalow circa 1921 so I loved looking through the magazine. Too bad I have to actually do some work rather than browse. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Thank you! This is an incredible resource - what a feast for the eye!
