    Design Language: Interpretive Edition McCreight, Tim
    $22.50

    Everything that is made is the result of design. Whether whittling a tent stake or planning a cathedral, artists face questions of size, materials, and shape. In every case, some choices are better than others, and in special cases, the decisions are so very good that they result in objects and images that take our breath away. In this unique volume, author and designer Tim McCreight has collected sixty words that show up frequently when we discuss the objects and artifacts in our world. Georgeous objects and images are shown along with commentary on the concepts of design. The premise of the Interpretive Edition, made plain in words and pictures, is that the process of design is not reserved for art students, but is a part of the experience of being human.

    Early American Wrought Iron

    Early American Wrought Iron is a celebration of the village blacksmith revealing the master craftsman in all his glory, his technical skills, and artistry, and illuminating his crucial role in the development of American culture. It is a giant essential resource for both blacksmiths and architects. Sonn, an excellent draftsman and commercial artist, dismayed that so many pieces of early American wrought iron were discarded, began to compile a collection of his own detailed drawings of early American wrought iron. His search through museums, antique shops, private houses, and collections uncovered many fine examples of ironwork.They are illustrated here in 640 plates containing over 3,000 drawings. Sonn spent eight and one half years traveling along the East coast sketching and doing research for this classic work.
