Portraits of the American Craftsman
"Stunning..." - Parade Magazine"A rare pictorial journey across America." - BookpagePortraits of the American Craftsman is a collection of portraits of the people and products made in small workshops all over the country, with lyrical descriptions of what they make, who they are, and the tradition embedded in their trade. This book is a celebration of the handmade at a time when it’s being embraced by a new generation of DIY and local-focused consumers who are averse to the mass-produced.Award-winning photographer Tadd Myers is four years into a cross-country journey to capture images of the American craftsman engaged in his work.
