Heskett "discusses the changing approach from historically oriented styles to innovative concepts of art and design which placed Germany at the forefront of design theory and practice in the early 20th century. Against the background of intellectual, social, and economic trends which stimulated this change, he charts the emergence of the concept of Kunstgewerbe (applied art), presenting a broad spectrum of theories, practice, and organizations which reflected Germany's problems in coming to terms with industrialization and its expanding role in the world." A very informative book, full of text and supporting images, on an important era and style of European design. Designers, interiors, furniture, metals, glass, ceramics, and much more.
