"Craeft" by Alexander Langlands
Faced with an endless supply of mass-produced things, we find ourselves longing for goods bearing the mark of authenticity―hand-made tools, local brews, and other objects produced by human hands. Archaeologist and historian Alexander Langlands' inquiry into the origins of crafts recovers our lost sense of meaning, combining deep history, detailed analyses and his own experiences making traditional crafts. Craeft is full of vivid storytelling, rich descriptions of natural landscape, and delightful surprises that will convince readers to introduce more craft into their lives.
