National Association for the Advancement of Art and its Application to industry, annual, 1889-1891  [Text in English]

[The period covered by Arts: Search 1889-1891. Available]
 
The National Association for the Advancement of Art and its Application to Industry (NAAAI) was formed in 1887 with the specific the purpose of holding an annual Congress in the principal manufacturing towns in the UK to "discuss problems of a practical nature connected with the welfare of the Arts, Fine and Applied".  The NAAAI subsequently held congresses in Liverpool (1888), Edinburgh (1889), and Birmingham (1890) of which these are the Transactions.

The Transactions contain essays by William Morris, Walter Crane, Christopher Whall, J.D. Sedding, C.R. Ashbee, T.J. Cobden-Sanderson, Emery-Walker, W. Holman Hunt, John Brett, Heywood Sumner, Lewis F. Day, Patrick Geddes, Selwyn Image, Stanhope Forbes, , G.F. Watts, A.H. Mackmurdo, Henry Holiday, W.S. Frith, etc.

The NAAAI folded soon after the Birmingham Congress. There were plans to hold a congress in November 1891, however, this never materialised.
