Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of actual Popular Mechanics magazine projects to make Mission style lamps that were originally published in the twenties. However, some techniques presented are outdated, but the daigrams for the proportions and measurements of the lamps and shades are the real jewel here. Some of the instructions are slightly vague and at times a bit hard to follow. But the measurements and proportions are what give true Mission style its appeal and elegance, and these are straight forwardly presented.

For what's here, it's worth the price.

This is a good basic book for those looking for information on mission style lamps. Other reviewers have noted dimensions for actually constructing the some of the projects are contradictory. I would use this more as a cncept/style book from which to develop my own more contemporary version plans.

Good book, although a little dated. Recomended as a start point for those interested in Mission/Arts and Crafts/Shaker furniture.

Do not buy this book. If you're interested in A&C / Mission style lamps, this is not going to be helpful. I realize the paperback price is very economical, but the language is remedial and vague. There are alternate books available that will provide narrative, diagrams, and instruction you will find to be useful.

This is the exact same book as "Lamps and Shades - In Metal and Art Glass" by John Duncan Adams, also available from Amazon. Apparently the copyright has expired, so anyone who wants to can reproduce this book. This Dover edition is formatted slightly smaller, so the diagrams are smaller, but it's the same book. You certainly don't need both of them.
