I think I am as excited about tomorrow as all the kids in the world are about Santa coming to town...
4th of December is the official launch of
handmade living – a designer collective
I was lucky enough to have a small selection of kasiabear's goodies included in the book and I am just itching to see a copy myself.. hopefully the postie isn't delayed by all the christmas mail and delivers mine early in the week..
handmade living – a designer collective is a unique and beautiful hardcover book showcasing the talents of handmade designers, artisans and craftspeople from all over Australia. Unique in its design, the book features over 70 gorgeous projects and inspirational ideas that both showcase this local talent and offer readers of all handmade levels the opportunity to create something whimsically precious and simply wonderful.
Created under the umbrella of Handmade Canberra, the book is another feather in Handmade’s cap, along with its phenomenally successful quarterly market and retail store in the heart of the nation’s capital.
For Australian designers, the book is a wonderful vehicle to promote and market their amazing products and ideas, broadening their scope and (for many) meeting a far greater audience than they could ordinarily achieve. As many of our best handmade talent is based around cottage industry, handmade living. is a priceless way to help give these businesses the vital exposure they need.
Combined with gorgeous handmade projects and inspirational ideas the reader will love, handmade living. is quite unlike any other book published in Australia today. Handmade Canberra has been thrilled to work with designers on this book, and continues to pride itself on supporting home-grown handmade talent.
This book would make a gorgeous christmas gift.. go to handmadecanberra.com.au for more details..
