Traditional Crafts: The Rural Industries of England & Wales
This is a handsome hardback book I bought to add to my collection of traditional craft books, which has a preference for books from the seventies; there was a great number of wonderful crafts books produced in that decade. It was the lovely cover design that attracted me. This edition was published in 1978, but the original edition was from 1927.
The chapters are on: Decorative Crafts and Their Place In Village Life; Lace-Making, Home Crafts and Industries, Rural Potteries, Lapidary Workers.
I will be featuring many other traditional craft books.
