"So many books have been published on the subject of design and the topic has been attacked from so many different points of view that one wonders sometimes whether the field is not altogether covered. There are so infinite a number of angles from which the subject may be viewed however, that every addition is welcome. As might be guessed from the title "A Text-Book of Design," is intended primarily as a text book and is arranged accordingly. The fact that both authors have been university instructors, one in the University of Illinois and the other at Harvard is a guarantee that the book fills its place in this respect. To our mind the idea of a text-book and a book for general reading is rather incompatible and for that reason we doubt whether it will have as wide an appeal as the authors think in their preface. The excellent selection and use of illustrations by which the principles are developed make it valuable, however, to anyone who wishes to establish in his own mind the standard of pure design."
