Mission style has withstood the test of time. In homes across America and around the world, Mission furniture creates a look and feel to a home that few others styles can--elegant and homey, all at once. This is a classic book of Mission-style furniture, filled with plans for the do-it-yourselfer and inspiration for architects and designers. Included are chairs, tables, desks, beds, shelves, and other more unusual items like wastepaper baskets, clocks, music stands, and even a porch swing. Each project includes a cutting list and detailed, measured drawings of each furniture piece, as well as the general order of work along with handy finishing tips.

This is a reprint, this time "colorized" of a book that Algrove Publishing (Lee Valley) did a reprint of several years ago, while the instructions are useful, the language is dated, there are only drawn illustrations (one per project), no photographs and no "step by step" images or instruction.
The pieces span skill levels as long as you have an understanding of construction methods.
However, as a big fan of Arts & Crafts/Mission furniture styles, I found this book both very informative, and worthwhile enough to purchase, with several projects I plan to build.
