The scientific world of the time had already established the principle of the �intelligent design” of a Creator- the art world had spent centuries devoting itself to the celebration of such a Designer’s creation.

Among the artwork included are items from William Morris, C. R. Ashbee, Christopher Dresser, C. F. A. Voysey, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Louis Sullivan. Through these pieces and the accompanying examinations, the book explores how popular conceptions of the theory of evolution were used or rejected by British and American artists in the years that followed Darwin’s publication.
