Abstract

Alan Calder, James MacLaren: Arts & Crafts Pioneer, Shaun Tyas, ,     . £. This publication marks the th anniversary of MacLaren’s birth and is the first (and only) study of a largely unheralded architect who was both an important figure in the Arts & Crafts movement, and a formative influence on Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The eminent H. S. Goodhart-Rendel lamented that ‘… this remarkable work should be so little known is a sad proof that novelty, when it is rational rather than sensational, obtains scanty recognition’. Alan Calder has made a -year study of MacLaren and must be considered the expert in his field. Calder is obviously an enthusiast and organised an  exhibition on MacLaren in . He was also the author of an Architects’ Journal ‘Masters of Building’ article which (until now) was the main source on MacLaren published in recent times. In some ways it is understandable that there is not a vast range of literature on MacLaren, since he does not have a large body of built work, yet at the same time he was an influence on other Arts & Crafts architects including Voysey, Mackintosh, Lorimer and, later, even
