Frayling's entry into the modern tensions of creativity and technology (fought out here on the turf of craft) is an important one, though I can't help feeling it is all too often a nostalgic view. Some of the articles that make up the book are rather aged, though his point is that, surely, the precepts don't change. Actually, in something as fluid and culture-dependent as craft (or art, or design), they do, and there isn't quite enough discussion of that for me here. Personally, I think it's time we looked at a different model than the Bauhaus. If that's all we can do after 100 years, then craft is in more trouble than we thought.

Excellent book for anyone interested in the Applied Arts. Well written, easy to read and a good addition to the few books written on the crafts.

A very good read. Frayling develops each essay through in-depth historical research and interviews. Each argument is carefully constructed to keep you in the moment when reading, excellent.
