Description


The Nature and Art of Workmanship is one of the classic books on craftsmanship and design. David Pye explores the meaning of skill and its relationship to design and manufacturing. Cutting through a century of fuzzy thinking, he proposes a new theory of making based on the concept of good workmanship and shows how it imparts all-important diversity to our visual environment.
