All things Woodworking...

New from Lost Art Press – By Hand & Eye


“By Hand & Eye” is a deep dive into the world of history, architecture and design.
Instead of serving up a list of formulas with magical names (i.e. the Golden Section, the Rule of Thirds) that will transform the mundane into perfection, George R. Walker and Jim Tolpin show how much of the world is governed by simple proportions, noting how ratios such as 1:2; 3:5 and 4:5 were ubiquitous in the designs of pre-industrial artisans. And the tool that helps us explore this world, then as now, are dividers.

Stock will be with us by the end of the month, priced at £27.95, read more about the book and reserve you copy by clicking here
