While Krenov's work is certainly inspirational, that's about the
ugliest job of book design... or it would be, had "The Fine Art of
Cabinetmaking" not been published. Both just scream the worst of late
'70s design. (Thank goodness neither is set in ITC Souvenir.)
Whas that "Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, Book 1: Joinery"? I found it
very clear, in spite of some reproduction problems with the pix...
though it's taken me about a year to resolve the cover illustration
into a dovetail joint. Kept reading it as some abstract illustration --
no longer able to see that, now that I know what it's supposed to be!
Not so much computers and woodworking, I think, rather electronics and
woodworking. I noticed a correlation some time back (maybe it's just
that design is design - doesn't matter much what). Computers, to me,
were just a way to get paid to design circuits. ;-)
I don't think so. CACI was known as the Old Sailor's Home, there were so
many retired revolving door Navy officers there. They had a bunch of Iranian
Navy stuff squirreled away in Pennsylvania. This was during and right after
the Hostage Crisis.
