LIBERTY DESIGN: 1874-1914 by Barbara Morris, Chartwell Books, Inc., NJ, 1989. 
Over 100 superb color and black-and-white photographs with identifying captions highlight this early out-of-print book which reviews the history and art of Liberty & Co., Ltd., London. 
Everybody knows Liberty’s famous fabrics, but in the period from the 1870’s to the First World War Liberty’s were also famous for their furniture, glass, ceramics, jewelry, silver and pewter.  The store had a unique record of participation in the major artistic movements of the day, particularly the aesthetic movement of the 1870’s and 1880’s, the arts and crafts movement of the1890’s, and Art Nouveau at the turn of the century.”  This book examines all the areas in which Liberty gained prominence.  Chapter topics include textiles, wallpapers, carpets, costume and embroideries, silver, jewelry and metalwork, ceramics and glass, furniture and interior decoration, and more.  This is a beautifully and generously illustrated volume, one which will please, inspire and edify anyone with an interest in Art Nouveau and Mission period design.
