The Backbone of Britain book starts with one question, ‘Why do you do what you do?’. The answer is love. Love of keeping craft skills alive, the love of making beautiful objects, the love of doing what you love is the answer. With over 30 insightful stories of the makers across Britain. This artisan book talks to Wheelwrights, traditional Sign Writers and many more. Their stories are about undying passion and that never ending purpose in Britain.
