The first global survey of the designers and makers reinventing artisanship in the digital era - introducing the evolving 'digital artisan' movement.
While the industrial revolution of the nineteenth century diminished the role of the craftsman in the manufacturing process, the digital revolution has given rise to entirely new working methods and hybrid skill-sets, and has reinvented the way we approach and appreciate the output of the craftsman.
Digital Handmade : Craftsmanship In The New Industrial Revolution
presents 80 international artists, designers and artisans who combine the precision and flexibility of digital fabrication with
the emotion and tactility of traditional master craft techniques,
to create unexpected, beautiful and unique objects that could never have been conceived in the age of analogue alone.
288pp, 541 illustrations in colour and black & white.
