Handpainted watercolor on silk by Kristine Baker.  Exclusive design based on The Gamble House living room rug.  Two sizes available.  

12x60" Without Fringe $70.00

Kristine worked patiently with us to create the perfect design for this beautiful silk scarf.  The design is drawn onto each scarf, then painted with the 10 colors, dried, steamed, cooled down, and then finally hand washed and hung to dry.  The Arts and Crafts Movement is all about individual art and doing hand work, so we love that this scarf really embodies that process.  

Price: $70.00 

Sizes Sm-3XL as available.
Price: $17.95 

The Bookstore is happy to be carrying this exclusive design by Susan Hebert of Cobre. The lapel pin and pendant are intricately cut-out to resemble the famous Gamble House door and are both in sterling silver.

by Yoshiko Yamamoto

The Arts and Crafts Press

10" x 18.5" Matted

12.5" x 23.5" Framed


In 1996, Yoshiko founded with her husband, Bruce Smith, The Arts & Crafts Press in Berkeley, teaching herself (with the help of wonderful mentors) the craft of letterpress printing. For her limited edition prints, Yoshiko first sketches, and after multiple drawings and water colors, she begins cutting blocks. Sometimes she works with wood blocks, usually cherry, and other times she chooses linoleum. Yoshiko takes the blocks and prints each color separately on a Vandercook printing press, using as many as twenty blocks per print to achieve the desired effect. Yoshiko now resides in a small coastal town of Washington with Bruce and their children.

This print was created from sketches Yoshiko did while visiting The Gamble House in 2007.

Price: $125.00 

From the back cover:

"In the Greene & Greene Style is an invaluable sourcebook for any woodworker who wants to master the Greene & Greene design idiom and make it his or her own. Based on the author Darrell Peart's unique knowledge of the Greenes' original work, In the Greene & Greene Style presents easy-to-use instructions for creating authentic Greene & Greene details such as ebony splines, block & dowel pulls, fingers, and waterfall legs."
