Congratulations! We’ll drop you an email.
Screw mass production, praise the handmade. Although we ourselves have only two left hands and all thumbs, we adore handcraft and like browsing through all those blogs with gorgeous photos of sweet handmade products. Last September now, a book came out on Thames & Hudson that is dedicated to those handmade designs and it’s called “The New Artisans Book” by Oliver Dupon. In his beautifully designed and photographed book the French designer and blogger has captured over seventy artisans who use craft techniques to create stylish and desirable objects. Hundreds of colour photographs feature a huge variety of crafts, including art, ceramics, furniture, lighting, papercraft, textiles and more. The book also contains Olivier’s personal recommendations for inspiring shops and websites to visit, which makes it the perfect source for discovering unique and beautiful objects made by new, talented artisans from all around the world. And the best thing is: We give away one copy here on our blog! Yay.
How can I win?
If you want to win the New Artisans Book, just post a comment below and tell us about your favorite handmade object that you own or would like to own. We will pick and announce a winner on Saint Nicholas Day (Tuesday, December 6th).
Make sure to check out the New Artisans Book Facebook page and Oliver’s Blog where he features all kinds of cool stuff from photography to fashion and product design (We especially liked the post about Julie Blackmons awesome photos recently.). You can also buy the book on Amazon.
