Description
A leading figure in the British Arts and Crafts movement, Charles Francis Annesley Voysey specialized in the design of small country houses for wealthy clients, among them industrialists, a publisher, and the celebrated writer H. G. Wells. With their emphasis on ground-hugging horizontality, hipped roofs, brick walls covered with white-painted roughcast, and enlivening splashes of color, these houses were marked by a graceful simplicity and a refreshing freedom from the imitative styles that had bedeviled so much of England’s 19th-century architecture.

The renderings reproduced in this book of postcards showcase Voysey’s brilliance in creating homes faithful to his design ideals of “Repose, Cheerfulness, Simplicity, Breadth, Warmth, Quietness in a storm, Economy of upkeep, Evidence of protection, Harmony with surroundings, Absence of dark passages, even-ness of temperature.”
