The Forgotten Crafts – A Practical Guide to Traditional Skills
By: John Seymour
Dorling Kindersley Ltd. – 1980
In this beautiful book John Seymour celebrates traditional crafts in the best possible way – by showing and describing in fascinating detail just how they were done, and by encouraging us to keep them alive. Filled with old photographs and lovely drawings, this is a fun book to have on the shelf. John Seymour lived on a farm and worked hard to recreate life as it was so his writings are based on his experiences. The subjects covered range widely from woodland crafts to workshop crafts and household crafts. Something for everyone!
