Asheville hasn’t received this much attention since the total eclipse of the sun in August of 2017. This time it was snow, not total darkness, that captured the media’s focus. To someone who grew up in Illinois mowing yards in the summer and shoveling sidewalks in the winter, snow storms in Asheville are both rare and over-dramatized. Schools are cancelled on the basis of a dire prediction, and many times golfers are back on the course by early afternoon. Not this time. Fortunately, this was such a slow-moving storm coming from the West Coast that we had …

We are currently in the process of collecting, organizing, identifying and displaying on this website as many Arts & Crafts shopmarks as possible. And like our Reference Library, we need your help. While we have documented the shopmarks of the major Arts & Crafts firms, we need for you to email us a photograph of any shopmarks you have from lesser known firms, along with a brief description of the piece.
As both a collector and a researcher, I have often wished there was one site where every book ever written on the Arts & Crafts movement was listed. Now that place exists. Together we can compile on this website a list of every book of interest to Arts & Crafts collectors. All you have to do is pull some of the books off your bookshelf (go for the less obvious ones – and check below for duplicate entries) and email me the title, author, publisher and most recent copyright date. I will sort them by category and list them here so that anytime you or anyone else wants to research anything relating to the Arts & Crafts movement, you will start your search here.
