THE STUDIO” YEAR-BOOK
OF DECORATIVE ART, 1908.
The third issue of this annual (just
published) will be found to be even more compre-
hensive and complete than the two previous ones,
the success of which has encouraged the Editor to
still further develop the scope and usefulness of
the publication. All those sections which were to
be found in the last volume are again included, in
some cases with amplifications. Amongst the new
features is an important and fully illustrated article
on “The Designing of Gardens,” by Mr. Thos. H.
Mawson, Hon. A.R.I.B.A., the well-known garden
architect; and Mr. E. Guy Dawber, F.R.I.B.A.,
deals with the subject of country houses. The
volume contains between four and five hundred
illustrations in black-and-white, a liberal number
of plates in facsimile colours, and a charming
pencil drawing by Mr. C. E. Mallows, F.R.I.B.A.,
is also reproduced as a double-page supplement.
The volume may be obtained through any book-
seller at home or abroad, but should any difficulty
be experienced in securing a copy a letter to the
London Office of The Studio (44, Leicester
Square) will ensure immediate attention. Further
particulars will be found in our advertisement
ECENT DESIGNS IN DOMESTIC
The illustration at the bottom of this
page is from a drawing of two cottages by Mr.
Percy Turner, A.R.I.B.A., of Bradford, Yorkshire,
who, as will be seen, has planned them with a
view to simplicity. The principal materials to be
used in construction are local stone rough-cast,
with grey slates for the roof, and wrought-iron
casements. The living-room measures 16 x 14
feet, and the kitchen is 12 feet square.
Our coloured reproduction opposite is from Mr.
Baillie Scott’s preliminary sketch for a proposed
cottage at Chailey in Sussex, designed for Lord
Llangattock, and to be used in connection with
the Home for the “ Guild of the Brave Poor
Things” at Chailey. Here, in pure and bracing
country air, crippled boys and girls are taught and
trained ; and by the generosity of Lord Llangattock,
Mrs. Kimmins, the originator of the guild, has been
able to carry on a work which nothing that can be
said here can sufficiently commend.
We also give on p. 134 an illustration of a small
house recently built at the Garden City from Mr.
Baillie Scott’s design on a site which is sheltered
on the north by a small wood or “ spinney,” and is
open to the south with excellent views. The walls
