Handmade Nation

I've already ordered Handmade Nation [] for our collection in Cook Library but you might want to check this out on a shelf somewhere. I think all of you would really enjoy and find this book encouraging and informative. My favorite profile is from a woman was a graduate student at Stanford studying sweatshop labor, consumerism and the industrialized process of how objects are made when she decided to make her own clothing which led to a career change. And coming soon a documentary [] on the indie craft movement.

Be in the know.
