Made in New York: Handcrafted Works by Master Artisans based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Made in New York is a charming book which shows how artisans are flourishing with wonderful work in the midst of a bustling metropolis. As my interest is in fine art, it was fascinating to read about the Art conservator, Simon Parkes as well as the master framer, Eli Wilner, whose talented craftsmen helped recreate the frame for the famous painting, Washington Crossing the Delaware. The exquisite photography shows that the hand-made object is alive and well in New York!
This book is a real treasure, highlighting top-tier artisans throughout New York and brimming with gorgeous color photographs. From well-known companies like White House framer Eli Wilner & Company, to hidden treasures like the upstate furniture maker Chris Lehrecke, each entry concisely describes the details that make each company unique.
