From the introduction: “The author’s aim has been to take the leading art-crafts, and to approach them, from two points of view that of the practice of them and that of scheming for and designing for them. Many useful hints and suggestions of a practical nature can be imparted by a practical worker in writing to those who have made a start, or even to those who are about to begin; while in the matter of design this can be dealt with in a yet more emphatic way by the help of illustrations, and the publishers have allowed the author to be prodigal in this matter, there being no less than 178 in the present work, gathered from many sources, and giving examples of craftsmen of very divergent tendencies.”
