WIL­LIAM SIM­MONDS: THE SILENT HEART OF THE ARTS & CRAFTS MOVE­MENT

Cotswold Life - - COTSWOLD BOOKS -

Jes­sica Dou­glas-home

The se­cluded Frome val­ley be­tween Cirences­ter and Stroud has been home to many artists and writ­ers over the last 100 years, many of them de­sign­ers as­so­ci­ated with the Arts & Crafts Move­ment. The best known are per­haps Ernest Barns­ley and Max Beer­bohm, and their men­tors, the Rothen­steins. In her metic­u­lously re­searched new book Jes­sica Dou­glas-home looks at the life of Wil­liam Sim­monds, an artist, sculp­tor and pup­peteer, who in many ways held the group to­gether, and who fi­nally has a cham­pion wor­thy of his work. Uni­corn £25
