CRAFTED IN BRITAIN


CRAFTED IN BRITAIN

ANTHONY BURTON    Book Number: 88614    Product format: Hardback

The survival of Britain's traditional industries is celebrated through dramatic large colour photographs with a text describing the processes and history of different industries. We travel the country from the Spey Valley in Scotland to a traditional distillery and a cooperage, to Cornwall and the studio of a specialist pub sign painter, under ground with a Free Miner of the New Forest of Dean and see molten metal being poured to create majestic church bells. We go to the grain mill and meet the millwright, the cheesemaker, the smokehouse, the silversmith, the pottery, the maltings, the brewery, the cider maker, the stained glass studio, the organ builder, the stone quarry and stone masons, the brickworks, the glassmaker, the blacksmith, the foundry, the clockmaker, the paper mill, the printer, the illustrator, the bookbinder, the woollen mill and the tannery. The images themselves burn into your mind and stir a response in the soul in this magnificent piece of work, visually stunning and profoundly moving, a unique celebration of Britain's surviving industries and crafts and the people who practice them today and the wonderful objects they create. 224pp, colour photos throughout, a magnificent 11" square coffee table style book, many photographs in double page spreads.
