Product Overview

In a response to the sleek forms and perfect angles of most late twentieth century design objects, many of today''s artists and designers are returning to handmade work such as hand lettering, hand drawing, and hand sewing. "By Hand" features an international collection of the most noteworthy artists and shows their work in detailed photography and insightful texts.

From books to pillows to T-shirts to toys, the pieces in this volume define an alternative view of contemporary design. Personal craft is emphasized over perfection and the personality of the artist is put forth as a key element of the finished product. From Kiki Smith''s lovingly etched birds to Barb Hunt''s knitted land mines to dynamo-ville''s one-of-a-kind puppets to Evil Twin''s hand-stitched publications, today''s art revels in the care and consideration of craft.
