SUMMARY- This was originally my grandmother's book(her name is written on the back inside cover), but my mom appropriated it, putting her address label on the inside front cover. It's an ambitious book, and I admire its success in trying to impart the essentials of design to novices. This isn't a pattern book, not really, but a book about creating your own patterns. If you have any wish to launch out on your own but need someone to give you a gentle push, here it is.
