A book that should resonate with many of our readers (and certainly a few of our columnists) Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft, and Design documents the bubbling of a new American craft ideal. Linking tradition, punk ethos and a DIY spirit, Faythe Levine traveled from sea to shining sea to meet and interview people working in different media that represent the broad cross section of the crafting community. Particular attention is paid towards how new media helps to facilitate the growth and community of the movement. Like many of the interesting books being published this fall, Handmade Nation comes from Princeton Architectural Press. Available now from Amazon.
