In this book, the Two Red Roses Foundation shows its commitment to provide a historic and scholarly record of tiles and architectural faience from its collection. Author Dr. Susan Montgomery, whose research and writing on the subject exceeds expectations, explores in great detail the works of sixteen of the most prominent tile makers of the Arts and Crafts movement and more than 165 objects from the TRRF’s collection.From individual tiles, large and small, to running friezes, wainscots, fireplaces, panels, and entire room and outdoor installations, the book investigates and speaks to the ideals of tile design, craftsmanship, competition and production against the backdrop of the financial challenges and realities the tile makers faced.More than six years in the making, this handsomely designed, 360 page catalogue contains hundreds of high-definition color images, historic facts and figures. An extensive bibliography and index makes it a most valuable reference for collectors and scholars.“Montgomery's book is a monumental work with lavish photos and is well researched with a wealth of supporting documentation. It is an indispensable reference work about Arts and Crafts tiles and the Arts and Crafts movement in the United States.” Michael Padwee “Architectural Tiles, Glass and Ornamentation in New York” blog (http://tilesinnewyork.blogspot.com).
