The ArtsandCrafts movement was an international design movement that flourished between 1880 and 1910, especially in the second half of that period, continuing its influence until the 1930s. It was led by the artist and writer William Morris (1834–1896) from the 1860s onwards. It was inspired by the writings of John Ruskin (1819–1900) and Augustus Pugin (1812–1852), although the term "ArtsandCrafts" was not coined until 1887. [more][Less]
Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson (2 December 1840 – 7 September 1922) was an English artist and bookbinder associated with the ArtsandCrafts movement.
He was born in Alnwick, Northumberland, as Thomas James Sanderson. Sanderson attended many schools including the Royal Grammar School Worcester before entering Owen's College (Manchester University) and then Trinity College, Cambridge to study law. He left without taking a degree, and entered Lincoln's Inn as a barrister. In 1882 he married (Julia Sarah) Anne Cobden (1853–1926), a daughter of Richard Cobden, and they both took the surname Cobden-Sanderson.
As a friend of William Morris, Cobden-Sanderson was involved with the ArtsandCrafts ideology, and during a dinner party with the Morrises he was persuaded by Morris's wife Jane Burden to take up book-binding. In about 1884 he opened a workshop, abandoning his law practice. In 1887 Cobden-Sanderson suggested a new group be named the "ArtsandCrafts Exhibition Society," and in so doing gave the movement its name. By 1900 he had established the Doves Press in Hammersmith, London, naming it after an old pub next door, The Dove. Emery Walker became a partner in 1900 and oversaw the creation of the Doves Type used for all of their books. They produced a number of letterpress books, including the famous five-volume Doves Bible. [more][Less]
