Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

 

"Page through Bijkerk's new book for a host of great sources, photographed to draw you into another world where you'll find jewelers, ceramicists, hat-makers, and more." —Traditional Home

 

"Amsterdam: Made By Hand is a compact guidebook.....it captures how Amsterdam looks and feels through her eyes along with some of her most cherished shop suggestions. This book is ideal for those looking for a bit of an 'off the beaten path' guide to where one can find shops catering more to the handmade, upcycled, vintage-loving crowd. " —Decor8 : Fresh Finds for Hip Spaces

I bought this because I have her Paris book which I LOVE and which is a fabulous inspiration. Sadly, the Amsterdam book is less interesting for me. Right now it is packed up and not accessible so I can't give specific examples, however I really can recommend the Paris one which is a joy to read.

love this small handy book, plan to take it along when we visit Amsterdam, my parents were born there, my grandparents owned their own shops and my great grandfather was a builder and his buildings still remain standing. Can't wait to explore all the unique shops that are hidden down the narrow streets. I especially want to explore the button shop, as I too make things with buttons, so looking forward to our travel back in time.

Searching for something special in a foreign place can be a nightmare. Enter Pia Jane Bijkerk and her wonderful little book. Small enough to carry around, you will not want to be without this guide. Glorious ceramics, clothes, jewellery and unusual objects and more. Clearer photos than the Paris book and intriguing objects should set your heart aflutter and make you want to discover more. Research online or go there in person. Pia opens an Aladdin's cave of desirable things, many of which you would be hard pushed to discover without this book.
