Summary "Venetian blinds have enjoyed a revival in popularity during recent years and there has been a considerable improvement in their design and much development in their efficient manufacture. There has also been a wider field of application and increased adaptation for both domestic and business establishments, particularly in the use of attractive colour harmonies. Having realized for some time that a text book, or manual of up-to-date practice was overdue, we decided, as one of the oldest of established component manufacturers, to produce such a manual ourselves. We also strived, in spite of increased costs of production, to ensure that the book is sold at a nominal price, within the reach of all likely to be interested. This book is the result of two years of intensive work, and will, we hope, satisfy a long-felt, if unexpressed, need. Further editions will be produced as and when required and comments and suggestions for its improvement will be welcomed." -- Foreword, by Roger French, managing director, Thomas French & Sons Limited.
