Product description

Synopsis

This is one of the classic books on craftsmanship and design. In it, David Pye explores the meaning of skill and its relationship to design and manufacture. 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.

About the Author

David Pye, who died in 1993, was an architect, industrial designer and craftsman. For many years he was also Professor of Furniture Design at the Royal College of Art, London. He is also the author of Ships and The Nature and Aesthetics of Design.
