Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


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.
