Emery Walker: Arts, Crafts, and a World in Motion
by Simon Loxley
This book is an attempt to give a comprehensive sense of Emery Walker as a person, along with his career and achievements, in part through correspondence with important people in his life. The 143 letters spanning 60 years are accompanied by brief biographies of the correspondents and essays that examine some of the key stages and achievements of Walker's career.
The result is a fascinating picture of Emery Walker, his family and friends, the people he knew and the times he lived in: times of aesthetic vision, social revolution dreamed and actual, and world war, culminating in a symbolic, poignant valediction to Arts and Crafts as the shadow of another conflict loomed. The texts are accompanied by over 140 images, many of them (like many of the letters) never before published.
