Varnum, William Harrison, 1878-1946.
Industrial Arts Design, a textbook of practical methods for students, teachers, and craftsmen.
Chicago, New York, Scott, Foresman and Company [c1916].
A textbook that “is a practical guide for designing in wood, clay, and base and precious metals. It is intended for individual student use in the High Schools, Normal Schools, and Colleges and as a reference book for elementary school teachers.” Like Batchelder’s books, it first came out in a magazine. The use of non Arts & Crafts examples was at the insistence of the publisher. Coming late in the period, it is a good summary of practical design theory for the craftsman. (Cat 7.23)
