Made to Last
Vanessa Murray's Made to Last is a celebration of timeless, treasured products and the tradespeople behind their creation.
Some products explored in this book have been made by hand, others with cutting-edge technology, yet each has been designed and crafted with care.
What We Love About It
Made to Last features 50 artisans from around the world, detailing the products they create, the tools they use, and the secrets of their craft. With DIY projects included, readers can develop the skills to bring unique products to life. Learn how luthiers make electric guitars or horologists make wristwatches, and try your hand at making a bamboo bicycle or bathtub gin.
Made to Last's products and projects are extensive and varied - from everyday useful to wildly imaginative. Be inspired to make, care for or repair some treasures of your own.
Made to Last is stunningly beautiful as a coffee-table book, to use and enjoy for years to come. It's also the perfect gift for the special creator, or wanna-be creator, in your life.
