Notes: 
"The present text is the result of the authors' convinction that simple and practical study of every-day art can achieve two important ends. First, it will bring to the students a never ending source of enjoyment through training their appreciation of beauty in the every-day home environment. Second, it will solve successfully through repeated use of fundamental art principles the art problems which they are likely to encounter in the pursuit of their daily activities"--P. vii.
