Detailed Description

By Hand and Eye. Authors, George R. Walker and Jim Tolpin

Throughout this book, George Walker and Jim Tolpin use music as a metaphor to explain the mechanics of design.

They have done three things that no other book on furniture design has accomplished:

They refuse to accept that furniture design is a system of secret codes and numbers that merely need to be applied at the drafting table to create beauty. Or that design is innate and unteachable.

They reveal a much simpler system - similar to notes on a scale - that can guide your efforts to train your hand, eye and mind to create pleasing forms.

They give you a roadmap (instead of a plane ticket) for you to follow in the journey ahead. They show you the "musical scales" you need to practice. They show you how the instruments works. And they take you through nine projects to apply your new skills.
