Useful update on the modern craft scene. A really interesting book, which covers a number of craft activities. It# a nice contrast to my 1975 Craft Companion, and it’s interesting to note how many older crafts have now fallen by the wayside, whilst others are enjoying a resurgence.Just a nice book to ponder over, and take inspiration from.
