#D5 Head, Heart & Hand

This lavishly illustrated book, published by the University of Rochester Press, accompanies Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery's 1994 exhibition of the same name. Most of the 200 works in the exhibition are pictured, with color photographs of the personalities and places figuring in the Roycroft's peculiar history bringing the community vividly to life. Essays in the catalogue include a sociological overview anchoring the Roycroft in its turn-of-the-century milieu; an examination of the history of the Roycroft shops; and an exploration of Hubbard's role in the creation of America's consumer culture through his trademark brand of advertising and promotion.
