Overview

The inadequacy of many text books purporting to deal with craftwork results from their compilation by “writers of books” with but meagre experience in the practice of the craft. This book is different. Miss Dougherty has set forth in a most comprehensive manner the knowledge gained from her own experience both as designer, crafts-woman and teacher. This experience has intensified her conviction in relation to production, whether by hand or machine. Firstly an article must be well designed and secondly it must be well made. The high quality of work, from the above viewpoint, which has been achieved in classes under Miss Dougherty’s guidance, qualifies her to write this book, which will do much to raise the standard of Leatherwork as a hand craft. A detailed and well illustrated work on leathercraft and production, first published in the 1940s. Contents Include : Foreword Plates Introduction Materials Design Cutting Your Pattern and Material: Construction Notes Small Articles Handbags Travelling Equipment Gloves Slippers. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
