By Candace Wheeler. Modern introduction by Jean Dunbar. Facsimile reprint of the 1903 first edition, containing 13 chapters and 15 black & white photographs and full-page illustrations. Long before there was Martha Stewart, there was Candace Wheeler. She gained a national reputation for innovative embroidery, textile, and color design while partnering with Louis Comfort Tiffany, Samuel Colman, and Lockwood de Forest as Associated Artists. Her book Principles of Home Decoration owed its existence to the English-born Aesthetic Movement, and was the culmination of her long career as one of America's most respected home decorating advisers. A standard text for home decorating, Principles of Home Decoration was released in its final edition (the third) in 1913. 227 pages. Softcover.
