A delightful journey through our incredible creative heritage -- Hilary Clothier * BBC Countryfile * Impossible to resist ... a pure shot in the arm for those of us feeling jaded by our increasingly automated modern world * Saga Magazine * So many interesting crafts and their histories. A fully illustrated celebration ... hurray! -- Bruce Kemble-Johnson * Let's Talk * A truly beautiful book with some awe-inspiring photography * Cotswold Life * A magnificent piece of work, visually stunning and profoundly moving.
