Vintage 1950s 1960s lampshade making booklet

Atlas leaflet No. 40
'Atlas' Handicrafts Series
Published by Fred Aldous Ltd, Manchester, UK

Vintage craft booklet - undated but probably dating from 1950s or 1960s

Softback booklet - 20 pages (including cover) - cover in colour, remainder in black and white - features drawings and b/w photos - dimensions approx. 5.5" x 8.5"

Provides guidance on the construction of a variety of lampshade types: a thonged shade, a stitched shade, an empire shade, a pleated buckram shade, a fluted shade and fabric shades, including a twisted pleated shade

A handy little reference work to have on your shelf!

In good condition. Grubbiness/discolouration to edges of front cover (especially bottom edge - please see photo). But otherwise very good. Binding is tight. Internal pages are clean - they do not appear to have been used a great deal. No stains, tears or annotations

Any questions, please feel free to ask
