The New Artisans

Posted on Fri, 9 Dec 2011 by midcenturyjo

Yesterday I got my hands on a beautiful book. Well I had to fight two friends who wouldn’t give it back. The New Artisans by Olivier Dupon and pulished by Thames & Hudson is a must have book. A beautiful, simple celebration of the handmade and the one of a kind it takes an intimate look at 75 artisans around the globe who share the joy of creating beauty with their hands. Some you will know from blogs, others will be new to you but they are all leading members of the growing community who cherish handmade made exceptionally well. Over 850 images, 75 profiles, 320 pages, listings by category and all of it gorgeous and covetable. A lovely Christmas gift idea. The book is available online and in bookstores. The Facebook page is here. Also don’t miss Olivier’s blog Dossier 37.


What a cool and interesting book.
Love reading about innovative and interesting ideas in design and the sources behind them.
The feature on ceramics is great – love those white and coloured pieces on the bottom right of the page.
Will for sure pick this up and have a look at Dossier37.
