Thatcher, an instructor of Decorative Metal Working at Columbia University's Teachers College in New York City, made clever and durable creations using simple tools and an abundant material. His design methods were trial-tested by both10-12 year olds and wounded World War I soldiers. The book includes over 100 helpful diagrams and black-and-white photographs. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
