Submitter: This book is definitely showing its age. There are references to wood shop class and dime stores, and the illustrations aren’t the best. The “hooded mask” project should also raise more than a few eyebrows.
Holly: Yeah, that mask (below) is frightening. Look, folks, any craft book this old should at least be considered for weeding in a public library. As Submitter points out, the references are often too old to be relevant to today’s readers. We can do better than this – and if you can’t do better than this in print form, refer patrons to Pinterest.
