Format: Hardcover
This book encompasses more than 70 artisans and their works. There is text about each person and how they create their work. Several colour pictures usually accompany each, some showing the process of design. Web sites are also included. All is done in an elegant style that shows off these handmade endeavors.

Some of the works are ceramics, some textiles or jewelry and some are even recyclable collages.
A directory that includes pictures also showcases these works.
A list of shops in the US, London, Paris, Sydney and Tokyo, websites, blogs are all included.

This book would make a good resource for those who are interested in arts, crafts and even interior design.
