Making Lampshades


We do love a bit of "Mid Century Modern" on Front Free Endpaper. This booklet is published by Dryad Press in Leicester who specialised in short books and pamphlets about various crafts, quite advanced in some cases. This one was published in 1958 and, although I've only chosen to show the photographic illustrations, it's full of diagrams as well showing you how to construct your lampshade in the very latest style.

Hi,

This link will probably degrade over time but at the time of posting there were a number of these for sale on Abebooks here: http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/SearchResults?bi=0&bx=off&ds=30&pn=dryad&recentlyadded=all&sortby=17&sts=t&tn=making+lampshades

Hope this helps
