Product description

Review

What a superb book this is... the central premise being so clearly intelligent, so engagingly correct... As it is, the perfectly planned prose and stylish design could elevate Peter Korn's account of his life and career, as a craftsman (a furniture maker) to the status of a modern classic. This is one cool piece of work. -- Robert Crampton "The Times (U.K.)"

Book Description

Heartfelt and thought-provoking, an eloquent meditation on the nature of work and craftsmanship and why it matters, more than ever, that we value the process of making things well.
