The publication came to be from the results of many theoretic principles and practical experiences of the author, a well known Slovak designer and pedagogue (Dean of Design Institute at the Faculty of Arts of Technical University in Kosice). It is not however a technological handbook or a picture book of design or traditional wood products. It is about the coming together of wood, its sequential design, and traditions of its processing. The author integrates, “experiences gained from long years working with the craft, the knowledge from studying design at various institutions, and a relationship with old functional/utility wood products and traditional crafts.

The picture format of the book contains rich and sharp picture materials from Slovak and international sources. The processes of traditional crafting come mainly from Slovakia or the European region while some of the design and crafted objects are depicted from outside the European nations as well.

The book is highly valuable for students, designers, craftsmen, and in some cases for aspiring wood crafters.
