The Practical Handbook of Carpentry, 1969


The Practical Handbook of Carpentry, by R. J DeCristoforo, 1969.

What a beautiful book. I love this book not for the wealth of information it holds, which it does have wonderful looking charts and instructions, I love this book for its design. Neon green, red and blue. Funky layout. The only thing not so great are the quality of the pictures, which seems pretty standard for the time, but besides that, this is a very modern book.

About Gotcha Cha Cha

Hello, I am making this blog to complement my store on Etsy. I sell "found" art and lovely illustrations from unusable vintage books. I also love my 2 cats (Lupe and Cha Cha, hence the inspiration for the store/blog name) and one dog (Daisy a beagle), not to mention my 2 school age daughters, and my husband who can draw anything and does that for a living.
