Made by Hand: Contemporary Makers, Traditional Practices
This product is currently sold out.
A visually stunning survey of some of the finest worldwide handmakers, the spaces in which they work and the products they create, Made By Hand serves as a remedy to mass production and a celebration of the return to artisan craft. Made By Hand takes the reader through tailors, shoemakers, stationers, watchmakers, instrument makers, cosmeticists and more, profiling these makers with images of themselves, their workshops, products and techniques. By focusing on the choice these artisans have made to craft goods in an age where mass-produced, imported wares are cheaper and easier to produce, the book is a celebration of the return to the organic, the hand-made and the home-grown, at a time when owning carefully crafted products is considered environmentally friendly and economy boosting, and ultimately fashionable. Made By Hand is framed as an address to hand craft as an environmentally friendly and economically healthy resurgence that is not only nostalgic, but also progressive and productive.
