129 FOREWORD THE INADEQUACY OF MANY TEXT BOOKS PURPORTING to deal
with craftwork results from their compilation by writers of Looks
with but meagre experience in the practice of the craft. This book
is different Miss Dougherty has set forth in a most comprehensive
manner the knowledge gained from her own experience both as
designer, crafts woman and teacher. This experience has intensified
her conviction in relation to production, whether by hand or
machine. Firstly an articlemust be well designed and secondly it
must be well made. The high quality of work, from the above
viewpoint, which has been achieved in classes under Miss Doughertys
guidance, qualifies her to write this book, which will do much to
raise the standard of Leatherwork as a hand craft. Margaret Owen

construct. r oo - si 13 t O, . .
