This volume was written in 1994 to accompany an exhibition on The Roycrofters produced by the University of Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery which subsequently went on tour. Authored by various hands, and well illustrated with both color images and reproductions of historical photographs, it still remains a useful volume for those interested in the American arts and crafts movement in general and Elbert Hubbard's Roycrofters in particular.

Elbert Hubbard had been influenced by the ideas of William Morris on a visit to England. He was unable to find a publisher for his book "Little Journeys", so inspired by Morris's Kelmscott Press, decided to set up his own private press to print the book himself, founding Roycroft Press.

This catalogue is published to accompany the University of Rochester Memorial Art Gallery's exhibition of the same name, the first major assembly of objects produced at the Roycroft community in upstate New York, under the leadership of Elbert Hubbard. A consummate entrepreneur who made a fortune from selling soap, Hubbard successfully married capitalism with the basic tenets of Arts and Crafts ideology. His enterprise was financially stable and provided a platform for broadcasting his position on big business, women's rights, holistic healing and environmental issues, at the same time offering manual training and employment for hundreds of unskilled country people. Although clearly influenced by the work of European designers, (a visit to William Morris's Kelmscott Press in 1894 had been an early and important influence), the Roycrofters sought to personify the best aspects of the American character in their work, which is strong, spare and refined. A sociological overview and the history of the Roycroft shops is examined in essays on the books, furniture, metalwork and leathercraft that they produced. Other topics include the artists attracted to the community's creative environment, contemporary first-person impressions garnered from entries in the guest registers of the Roycroft Inn, and Hubbard's role in the creation of America's consumer culture through his trademark brand of advertising and promotion. Most of the 200 works in the exhibition are illustrated in colour; and photographs of personalities and places that figure in the Roycroft's history bring the community to life.

This volume was written in 1994 to accompany an exhibition on The Roycrofters produced by the University of Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery which subsequently went on tour. Authored by various hands, and well illustrated with both color images and reproductions of historical photographs, it still remains a useful volume for those interested in the American arts and crafts movement in general and Elbert Hubbard's Roycrofters in particular. In addition to a short introduction to Hubbard's fascinating life it includes separate sections discussing Roycrofter bookmaking, furniture production, copper work, leather work and art more generally. Each chapter has source notes and there is a general bibliography and a list of known Roycrofters; it is not indexed.

A good reference work.

Reading about the Roycrofter furniture design and crafting, reminds us why some utilitarian pieces become valuable heirlooms and most just disposable expenses. Not only the designs creating a style of a period but the careful quality of the construction create utilitarian pieces that last forever and grow in appeal and appreciation. It also reminds us that it makes economic sense to look for these qualities when purchasing pieces for use because they are likely to last much longer than the mass produced pieces that seem cheaper but which are not sustainable or a good buy. There are more and more quality pieces available today following the Hubbard, Hitchcock, Chippendale, Shaker, Mooberry, examples.
