"Amsterdam: Made by Hand is the second such book by the Australian stylist and photographer Pia Jane Bijkerk, who specializes in photographing still life. Amsterdam's village-like warren of old shops yielded hundreds of interesting objects that serve as the subjects for her work. The book is divided into ten 'Wanders' that take the reader through cobblestoned backstreets of the old canal district, where there are woodworkers, jewelry designers, dressmakers, ceramicists and more...The book should appeal to both traveler and interior decorator." --Pittsburgh Tribune Review
"Australian stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk proudly shows off the artisan ateliers, workshops and stores of her adopted city of Amsterdam in this latest book. It's the second in her Made By Hand series; the first covered Bijkerk's previous home town, Paris. What makes this new volume so appealing are the photos accompanying each of the lovingly written entries." --Inside Out (Australia)
"Bijkerk covers every nook and cranny of Amsterdam's maze-like streets. From more well-known destinations...to the tiny retail havens nestled between canals...Bijkerk leads readers through Amsterdam store by store...For astute tourists or locals looking for a fresh take on their hometown, both 'Amsterdam: Made By Hand' and its Paris counterpart make well-edited guides to some of each city's most distinct offerings." --Cool Hunting

I got this as a present for a friend, but I am almost embarrassed to give it to him. I thought I was getting a beautiful picture book, but instead it's a pocket guide.Published on November 1, 2010 by cbl
