I really bought the book because of the presentation. I wanted to own it as an object, and the excellent contents were only a bonus.
The book is A4 sized, and made from six individual signatures (group of folded pages), hand-sewn through the spine in red thread, with clear adhesive over the spine (so it's like a perfect-bound book, but without a wrap-around cover, so the way it's constructed is visible). As you read, the red stitching is visible peeking from the spine, and when you get to the center of each signature there's a gorgeous red slash of colour down the middle of the book. It has a simple card cover with the title die-cut out. The title is also printed on the spine (very clever, as a section of each letter has to be printed on the spine of each signature). The whole book looks like a hand-crafted super-sized fanzine, which I like a lot. However the pages are a non-fanzine nice weight and gloss.
The book covers a great range of craft artists; Olu Amoda, Anne Cattrell, Susan Collis, Naomi Filmer, Lu Shengzhong, Yoshihiro Suda, Anne Wilson, and Lizzie Finn. Finn's section is a little different, as she has made a stitched drawing inspired by each artist's practice, drawing on the ethos of 1970s how-to manuals. However all the other sections cover a bit about the artist's history, how they create, their studio, and their work. If you like any one of these artists I would definitely recommend buying the book. There's also a brilliant introductory essay by Glenn Adamson on "The spectacle of the everyday". All the images are full-colour, and they are large and plentiful.
This is the perfect book on cutting-edge craft-based art. I strongly recommend it.
