Vintage hardback book: The Golden Book of Crafts and Hobbies. Published by Golden Press Inc, New York 1957, ninth printing 1962. Written by W. Ben Hunt.
This is an informative craft book full of projects to make both indoors and outdoors. Words and colour pictures give step-by-step directions for making all kinds of usable objects. The book is set out in six chapters - nature study, Indian ornaments, sleds, boats, camping equipment, and craft projects. There is an underlying element of Native American and Canadian crafts, and the projects use techniques and equipment suited only for older children or supervised.
The book is in excellent preloved condition, with just some peeling to the clear plastic coating on the spine. There is a handwritten note on the inside cover.
Dimensions: height 28cm, width 22cm.
