Summary A history of time-honored trades and artistry, and stories of the modern craftspeople keeping the traditions alive -- includes photos. Today, there is a resurgence in traditional trades and crafts as people look for sustainability and quality over mass-produced, foreign-made goods. The Book of Forgotten Crafts builds on that movement and reveals the fascinating history of British craftsmanship in a series of interviews with leading crafters at work today. Exploring a range of crafts -- village workshop, decorative, basketry, textile, woodland, building, and sports and recreation -- photographer Paul Felix and his collaborators profile potters, blacksmiths, glass blowers, pub sign designers, silversmiths, lobster pot makers, hedgelayers, thatchers, brick makers, bagpipe makers, gunsmiths, and many others.
