Janet Ashbee : love, marriage, and the arts and crafts movement by Felicity Ashbee ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This biography chronicles one woman's valiant life in a vanished era of emerging feminism and bold socialist thought." "C. R. Ashbee was, some would say, the key figure in the British Arts and Crafts movement around 1900. Regarded as heir to William Morris in political belief and design reform, Ashbee (and his Guild of Handicraft) gained international fame in his own time and remains a legend today. Although much has been written about him, to date there has been no full study of his remarkable wife." "This book reveals Janet Ashbee as a gifted woman of emotional warmth, strength, and unconventionality, qualities that enhanced her husband's work. But meeting the challenge of making a fruitful relationship and a practical marriage with C. R. Ashbee - predicated upon acceptance of his acknowledged and well-known homosexuality - represents one of the central themes of the book."--BOOK JACKET

Child in Jerusalem by Felicity Ashbee ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The year 1919 in Jerusalem marked the conclusion of hundreds of years of Ottoman rule and the beginning of British occupation, a period of great change that would transform the city. Felicity Ashbee's captivating memoir gives the reader a truly original portrait of life in post-WWI Jerusalem as seen through the eyes of a spirited young English girl. The daughter of Charles Robert Ashbee, a disciple of William Morris and prominent player in the Arts and Crafts Movement, Ashbee spent four years, from age six to ten, living in Jerusalem while her father spearheaded the effort to restore the city architecturally and artistically. That golden period of restoration and peaceful mingling of faiths would be brief, thus imbuing the Ashbee's time in Jerusalem with a retrospective poignancy." "Vividly capturing a child's ingenuous perceptions of place, Ashbee's story recreates classic moments of childhood experience against richly detailed views of her surroundings. Yet it also resonates with constant undertones of radical ideas, from her father's socialist tendencies and engagement in the modernist art movement to the establishment of religion-centered political factions that would erode much of Charles Ashbee's work after his departure. It is this union of child's-eye viewpoint and historical backdrop that makes Felicity Ashbee's work such a compelling memoir."--BOOK JACKET
