Product description

Soft card covers with no dust jacket; whole book almost as new, but for a slight stain to head of book when closed. See back of book photo for books contents. Main contents include ideas & instructions for 10 projects for Shaker chairs to bookcases. Arts & Crafts, (or Craftsman) style, founded by William Morris in 1875 as a reaction against Victorian vulgarity, is one of today's most popular classic/retro decorating styles. This book brings together the best articles from recent issues of Fine Woodworking and Home Furniture journals on building furniture in the Arts & Crafts tradition. It provides background on the style, building instructions, and inspiring pieces in three main sections: Style & Design describes the historical background and its hallmark design elements. Projects & Techniques describes and illustrates a variety of pieces, as well as specific woodworking techniques common to the William Morris style; Inspiration offers a full colour gallery of fine pieces created by experts to provide readers with ideas. Unique: there are many books on Arts & Crafts style, but only this one effectively combines style background & history with practical craft information. Practical: the projects result in attractive, accessible furniture projects. In full colour: step by step construction photographs, plus gallery shots.
