Earlier this week we profiled two new releases from Hoxton Mini Press. Today we have one more beautiful book for your collection.
"Makers of East London" East London has a rich history of craft and industry and is now seeing a resurgence of makers breathing life back into traditional techniques. With over 300 pages of colour photography and candid interviews this book documents the studios and practices of the area’s most inspirational craftspeople. Whilst the technological pursuits of Silicon Roundabout draw much press, there is a quieter handmade revolution happening alongside it that reflects an ever-growing interest in craft and individual skill.
Ceramicists, bike builders, sign painters, globe makers, weavers, furniture designers, spoon carvers, shoe makers… photographer Charlotte Schreiber and writer Katie Treggiden have gained unprecedented access into the workspaces of 27 local craftspeople to see what it takes to be a maker in a world of mass production.
You can buy all books from www.hoxtonminipress.com including collectable sets of books for special Christmas presents.
