Stencilling for decorative purposes has a fascination and a charm peculiarly its own and appeals strongly to the craftsman of artistic temperament. It admits of individuality of treatment and of endless variety of design suitable in its application to unpretentious dwelling-houses as well as to stately mansions with large and lofty rooms ; to spacious business premises with boardrooms and suites of offices ; to large hotels with splendid halls for banquets and dances ; to the magnificent buildings of "Clubland," or the princely saloons of Ocean Liners. It serves also most admirably for the delicate manipulation necessary to the chaste requirements in interiors of ecclesiastical edifices.

Stencilling has gained for itself a large place in the education of every good craftsman and its technique is part of his stock in trade. The standard work on " Painting and Decorating " by Walter J. Pearce gives precise and clear instructions in regard to the cutting of stencils, the manipulation of tools and application of Colours, whilst in regard to the scientific principles of colour work Hurst's " Painter's Colours, Oils and Varnishes"* is part of every house-decorator's upmake.

The Author's intention in this present work is to supply Ideas in Stencilling, the outcome of many years' experience of work upon a variety of buildings in Great Britain and in France. The success of stencilled ornament depends largely upon the combination of colourings in the design, and it is often in this particular that the skilled artisan is deficient.

Effects are not infrequently robbed of their beauty by the use of colours which offend the eye, and it is to safeguard this and the consequent disappointment that the author has carefully elaborated the KEY-PLATE of colourings which form the basis of this work.

This Key-plate contains Forty Tints which have been selected with the utmost care from numerous effects and the tints are numbered. Many choice designs are included in the book and numbers indicate the colours to be used in agreement with the Key-plate, By the application of colours corresponding with the tints shown the most charming effects will be secured. All the combinations of "Colorations" are the results of the most exacting tests and are submitted with confidence to craftsmen whose experience in harmonising colours is limited. They may be quite sure of achieving success.

Other handicraftsmen besides those engaged in house decorating will find this colour Key-plate and its application of the greatest service. It will prove useful in the ceramic industry for ornamental pottery and tiles, to glass embossers, bookbinders, and others who apply the decorative art to fabrics, silk, velvet, satin, and to paper, as well as to many domestic articles.

The author is gratified that Charles Griffin & Company, Ltd., who have gained international fame as publishers of technical books, have added this to their catalogue.
