Overview

This illustrated text celebrates a range of specialist crafts practised all over the country. From the more familiar butler and book binder to reed harvester, coppicer, duck breeder and Lord's dinner lady, it seeks to capture the atmosphere of Britain away from the fast pace of urban life. The Lord's dinner lady, for example, has worked at the MCC since 1961, and has received an honorary MBE for her services to cricket and cricketers. She admits to keeping the men "in line" because she likes the discipline, and has fed her appreciative guests with roast dinners and carbohydrate-rich teas for three decades. Other crafts have been laboriously learned and are painstakingly practised, and some of these cases record the last few practitioners of certain crafts. It includes a comprehensive index of addresses and phone numbers of the "treasures" and relevant craft organizations.
