Book excerpt: This is a practical instruction book in the art of decorating woodwork, with information on veneering, marquetry, and inlay. A profusely illustrated and highly accessible handbook, “Veneering, Marquetry and Inlay” is ideal for novices with an interest in decorative woodwork, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “Introduction, Preparation of Work, Tools”, “Cutting, Laying, Jointing”, “Curved Work, Cross-Banding, Stringing”, “Inlaying: Design and Practice”, “Natural Forms in Filling Spaces”, “Parquetry and Intarsia”, and “Marquetry”. Many vintage books like this are becoming increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on decorative woodwork.
