In a period of meaningless mass manufacturing, our growing appetite for
hand-made objects, artisan food, and craft beverages reveals our deep
cravings for tradition and quality. But there was a time when craft
meant something very different; the Old English word craeft possessed an
almost indefinable sense of knowledge, wisdom, and power. In this
fascinating book, historian and popular broadcaster Alex Langlands goes
in search of the mysterious lost meaning of craeft.
Through a vibrant series of mini-histories, told with his trademark energy and charm, Langlands resurrects the ancient craftspeople who fused exquisite skill with back-breaking labour-and passionately defends the renewed importance of craeft today.
