Also, in this context one should probably mention Cochran & Cox:
Experimental Designs. Probably mostly as supplemental reading, it is
not much of a textbook, and it has the weakness that it doesn't have
anything about random effects. However, it is a classic (and the
slightly old-fashioned style can be quite charming for students), and
some may remember that good ol' Genstat came with a full set of worked
examples from that book to show how the model formulas would work out.
