The world is a more beautiful place because of this book. It has honored these artisans and their art form with such dignity. It reminds me to slow down and act more carefully. It awakens my senses: from the feeling of the paper, to the visual impact of the images to the depth of the text.

The book is like a deep (visual) meditation...
I feel I've been reconnected to something real and profoundly enriching.

I just wanted to send a quick message to say my books have been received and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!! What a beautiful project! Thank you for putting together such great stories and visuals.

The book was not what I was expecting... I was expecting a work with more specific and in-depth coverage of a larger variety of crafts, but, on the other hand, it was more than what I was expecting. It is magnificent... sometimes breathtaking.

The book is like a deep (visual) meditation. It takes time to get into it, but once you quieten yourself and allow the spirit of the book to take you along, it's a very beautiful and I might even say enlightening experience.

In this world where so much art, in all the disciplines, is so superficial and, frankly, downright mediocre, I feel I've been reconnected to something real and profoundly enriching.

Congratulations for turning out such a meaningful and beautiful document. I'm so eager to share the extra copies I bought with very special friends who will soon have the pleasure of exploring this fascinating, colourful, and rich world you've opened up.

WOW. The books are beautiful! Thank you so much! I can't wait to give one to a creative friend of mine for the Holidays!

The pictures…oh, the pictures in this book are exquisite, and they are so readable—so thoughtfully composed that each image is its own narrative. On many pages, they’re panoramic, drawing me into worlds of creation by traditional artists and that greatest artist, nature. On others, they’re smaller, some like frames in a film, touching my feelings and yearnings.

The stories, 18 in all, take me to all the places in the pictures: I walk through a Tibetan grassland, roam the stark land of Kutch, and journey on the saffron road. I extract ochre from cliffs, paint on cloth in the Rogan way, carve wood into vessels, and comb river shoals for marble quality flint stone…. This book is an education and a pleasure.
