Reviews

"This book is a gem, and one that will inspire you to keep (or begin!) making and creating, a desire that's inside each of us."
--The House that Lars Built, November 2019 Book Club Pick

"A remarkable series of 30 vignettes that simultaneously comfort and stimulate. . . . Falick's treasury, sumptuously photographed, will appeal to anyone who admires the people dedicated to making the world around them more beautiful."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Lovely and thoughtfully inspiring. . . . These very up-close-and-personal profiles, supplemented by elegant color photographs of people at work and their projects, capture the spirit of making and the dedication that's behind the art. . . . In wholehearted agreement with the author: 'When we get to the point where we aren't able to make things with our hands and feel no mastery, we feel lost.' "
--Booklist, starred review
