Snow, Bonnie E. and Forehlich, Hugo B.  
A Hundred Things a Girl Can Make
 Picture
Publisher: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1922 Philadelphia, PA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "This addition to the numerous books on Handicrafts for Girls justifies itself in three distinct ways: it makes its approach to the subject from the standpoint of art; the materials used and the problems offered are neither commonplace nor hackneyed; and the finished results, if attained through a careful following out of the directions given, are not only of artistic interest, but possess as well unquestioned commercial value. For these reasons, it is hoped that the book will appeal to mothers who desire to provide high standards of handwork for girls; to teachers of Domestic Art and Home Decoration who seek new ideas and fresh inspiration for their classes; and to the girls themselves, who are ever responsive to suggestions that bear upon the question of 'fancy work'.." Illustrated. v + 147 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
