Handmade Class Book List.
I had a such a great time meeting those of you who came to my class on Friday--thanks for being there and for contributing so much to the discussion. I hope that you'll come back to dig into our collections in the future. In the meantime, as suggested by one attendee, I've put together the following list of magazines and books that I had in the classroom, for your reference:
Box furniture: how to make a hundred useful articles for the home by Louise Brigham
Creative hands, an introduction to craft techniques by Doris Cox and Barbara Warren
Hobbies : leisure and the culture of work in America by Steven M. Gelber
Clark's O.N.T. book of crochet and tatting by Frances A. Harris
Clark's O.N.T. "woolsaver" knitting and crochet book by Frances A. Harris
Formschone Lampen und Beleuchtungsanlagen by Gerhard Krohn and Fritz Hier
The simple art of wall decoration by Lois B. Livingston
Paper Sculpture by George Arthur Sadler
Paper silhouettes by Mildred Swannell
Another collection of one hundred textile designs compiled by S. Takahashi
Paper folding and modelling by Aart van Breda
Los milagros en metal y en cera de Puerto Rico by Teodoro Vidal
Wood Type from William H. Page and Company
Remember that these books are just the tip of the handicraft iceberg here at the Library. Don't hesitate to ask if you want help in finding particular materials. And also, please let me know if you have specific requests for future classes and programs. I'm always looking for ways to match your interests so don't be shy! Thanks again! And if you didn't make it to Friday's class but would be interested in future classes, stay tuned because our next season's schedule will be finalized soon.
