John Jacob Lentz (b. January 27, 1856, Ohio – d. July 27, 1931, Columbus, Ohio ). Roycroft was a reformist community of craft workers and artists which formed part of the Arts and Crafts movement in the United States. Elbert Hubbard founded the community in 1895, in the village of East Aurora, Erie County, New York, near Buffalo. Participants were known as Roycrofters. The work and philosophy of the group, often referred to as the Roycroft movement, had a strong influence on the development of American architecture and design in the early 20th century. Elbert Hubbard had been influenced by the ideas of William Morris on a visit to England. He wasunable to find a publisher for his book Little Journeys, so inspired by Mo rris's Kelmscott Press, decided to set up his own private press to print the book himself, founding Roycroft Press.
