 Subject: Mackintosh, Charles Rennie, 1868-1928. Arts and crafts movement - Scotland. Decoration and ornament - Art nouveau. This book argues that Mackintosh's originality lay in his 'poetics of workmanship' in which the building's structure, features, interiors and furnishings were subjected to a unifying system of forms, metaphors and unconscious associations. It looks at his sleek, 'feminine' and intensely private white interiors.
