The scope of this book is indicated by the title, but though addressed to amateurs it might serve as a text-book to those who intend to make Art-work their calling, for often the only line of demarcation between amateur and professional is that the latter makes a business of what the former does as a recreation. 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; for it was no part of the author's plan to select examples in which certain well-defined ideas found expression, as though there were one way only: in the craftsman's world are many mansions.
