Wow. It hasn't even been out three months, and "Handmade Nation" is already in it's THIRD PRINTING!
I can't imagine it needs another introduction, but just in case..."Handmade Nation" is a must read book and companion to Faythe Levine's independent film by the same name, which documents the upsurge of modern craft, art, design, and DIY culture.
The book was released in September, featuring 24 indie artists and crafty types (including Jenny Hart!), with super cool illustrations by Kate Bingman-Burt. The documentary will be premiering in January/February 2009 with locations and details soon to come. In the meantime why not support the production costs of the film by procuring a Limited Edition set of Handmade Nation embroidery patterns?
Oh, and if you're in Chicago tonight, head to Quimby's at 7pm for a book signing with Faythe Levine & Cortney Heimerl.
