Remedying a neglected part of architectural history, this volume presents the work of four of Australia's most innovative arts and crafts architects—Walter Butler, Harold Desbrowe-Annear, Walter Liberty Vernon, and Robin Dods. The influence of the arts-and-crafts movement in Australia has long been lost between the far better known Gothic and classical revivals and the modernist movement, and obscured by the chronological construction of "federation" architecture, but this study, along with the accompanying photographs and plans, brings to life the simple lines of their design and illustrates why it is so deserving of further recognition.
