Synopsis

Owen Jones directly influenced such luminaries as William Morris & John Ruskin, but he remains under-published until now. This title will be of interest to a wide audience from graphic and interior designers to architects, artists and curators. Jones' floral and romantic aesthetic is found throughout the contemporary arts today. This book takes a luxurious look of the work and life of Owen Jones, a luminary of Victorian Age architecture and design. It explores Jones's ideas and their relationship to those of other seminal figures of the time, including: Christopher Dresser, William Morris, A. W. N. Pugin and John Ruskin, among others. An author and architect, Jones was extremely active throughout his career as a book designer, interior decorator, tile, silk, furniture, and carpet designer - all of which will be lavishly presented in this book.
