Thanks to Ira S. Griffith and The Manual Arts Press back in 1912, we have 51 measured drawings of Arts & Crafts furniture and accessories preserved. Originally intended for use in Manual Education classes, these plans were developed by Griffith, one of the leading educators as well as a craftsman of the turn of the 20th Century movement.

Enough hyperbole. This started out in life as a small book. I’ve enlarged it to 8.5×11, trade paperback so the details can be easily seen.

I’m pushing, errr, selling this new title for $16.00, the usual 20% off retail through the Toolemera Shop website. For more details and more hyperbole:

Thanks for looking, Gary

Duly noted. Will be adding this to my birthday budget once the holiday is over.

The 20% is going to be permanent. Or if you watch Amazon and other booksellers, you might do better. Or, you could also let me know when your birthday comes around.

I would rather support someone who cares. Should be fun to flip through a few of the books you have on hand.
