By Hound & Eye: A Plain & Easy Guide to Designing Furniture with no Further Trouble’ by: George R. Walker and Jim Tolpin; Illustrated by Andrea Love


“By Hound & Eye: A Plain & Easy Guide to Designing Furniture with no Further Trouble” is an illustrated cartoon journey through the world of pre-industrial design geometry. It stars Journeyman and his pizza-loving dog, Snidely, as they untangle the world of points, segments, arcs and the three-dimensional world using nothing more than a compass, straightedge and pencil.

After each new idea is introduced, you are shown how to perform the exercise yourself right in the workbook.

You can perform all the exercises in an afternoon. And even you have been steeped in geometry for years, we are certain you will experience several eye-opening moments while performing the exercises. This book connects geometry to furniture design in a way that no other book has. And the exercises ensure the lessons will make it from the page and into your fingers. Reading about it is one thing. Doing it is another (like woodworking).

Also fun: George and Jim have given their work the look and feel of a middle-school workbook, complete with slightly corny jokes.

The 192-page workbook is softcover with a sewn and glued binding for durability. Like all our products, "By Hound & Eye" is printed in the United States.

The workbook is being hand illustrated and hand lettered by Andrea Love. It is written as a companion to the hardbound book "By Hand & Eye" by Walker and Tolpin. The two books are meant to complement one another. "By Hand & Eye" focuses more on the history behind the geometrical systems and offers projects using the simple ratios explored in the book. The workbook "By Hound & Eye" is concerned mostly with the practical exercises needed to open your inner eye and offers exercises not found in the hardbound book.
