EDITOR'S PREFACE

In issuing this volume of a series of Handbooks on the Artistic Crafts, it will be well to state what are our general aims.

In the first place, we wish to provide trustworthy text books of workshop practice, from the points of view of experts who Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell have critically examined the methods current Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell in the shops, and putting aside vain survivals, are prepared to say what is good workmanship, and to set up a standard of quality in the crafts which are more especially associated with design. Secondly, in doing this, we hope to treat design itself as an essential part of good workmanship. During the last century most of the arts, save painting and Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell sculpture of an academic kind, were little considered, and there was Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell a tendency to look on "design" as a mere matter of appearance . Such "ornamentation" as there was was usually obtained by following in a mechanical way a drawing provided by an artist who often knew little of the technical processes involved in production. With the critical attention given to the crafts by Ruskin and Morris, it came to be seen that it was impossible to detach design from craft in this way, and that, in the widest sense, true design is an inseparable element of good quality, involving as it does the selection of good and suitable material, contrivance for special Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell purpose, expert workmanship, proper finish and so on, far more than mere ornament, and indeed, that ornamentation Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell itself was rather an exuberance of fine workmanship than a matter of merely abstract lines. Workmanship when separated by too wide a gulf from fresh thought that is, from design inevitably decays, and, on the other hand, ornamentation, divorced from workmanship, is necessarily unreal, and quickly falls into affectation. Proper ornamentation may be defined as a language addressed to the eye; it is pleasant thought expressed in the speech of the tool.

In the third place, we would have this series put artistic craftsmanship before people as furnishing reasonable occupation for those who would gain a livelihood. Although within the bounds of academic art, the competition, of Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell its kind, is so acute that only a very few per cent. can fairly hope to succeed as painters and sculptors; yet, as artistic craftsmen, there is every probability that nearly every one who would pass through a sufficient period Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell of apprenticeship to workmanship and design would reach a measure of success.

In the blending of Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell handwork and thought in such arts as we propose to deal with, happy careers may be found as far removed from the dreary routine of hack labour, as from the terrible uncertainty of academic art. It is desirable in every way that men of good education should be brought back into the productive crafts: there are more Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell than enough of us "in the city," and it is probable Bookbinding, and the Care of Books A handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders & Librarians by Douglas Cockerell that more consideration will be given in this century than in the last to Design and Workmanship.
