arts and crafts time

britain's financial times reviews the arts and crafts show at LACMA in a way only the british can do - after establishing itself as the provenance of the movement (repeatedly), they then (almost begrudgingly) admit its a pretty good show, mainly because traces the chronology of arts and crafts. and the article also offers the caveat that london's V&A hasn't yet opened its own arts and crafts show (set to open next week) so they can't fairly compare.

decide for yourself but do it soon - the show closes April 3rd.

And for a history of the movement (and a far less patronizing tone) check out's article "design movement with universal appeal."
