The companion to By Hand & Eye, this workbook guides you through a series of simple exercises to help put into practice the design concepts described in Walker and Tolpin’s original text.

Illustrated in a simple, quirky cartoon style, it follows the main character, Journeyman, and his dog Snidely as they unravel the mysteries of design geometry using only a compass, straightedge and pencil, along with a few simple concepts based on whole-number ratios such as 1:2, 3:5 and 4:5.

The exercises are performed right on the pages of the book, helping you quickly become familiar with traditional principles that were commonly used in pre-industrial times but are all but lost in the modern world. An eye-opening guide to a range of techniques for designing harmoniously proportioned furniture.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 192 pages, 2015.
