As I was searching around the Kickstarter site I came across this book proposal by Christian Wilson from Boston MA called “Human by Trade.” I wanted to give the project its own post, because its funding date isn’t that far away and I think it’s a really great idea. Since we focus a lot on tradespeople, I’d hate to see a book that celebrates them go unpublished.
The coffee table book is a photo journal of people across the country who use their hands to make a living and in many cases a craft. Whether you are a boat builder a brewer or a bicycle mechanic your hands are as important as any tool you will use and tell a great story all on their own. As it states on the web page: “Human by Trade” is a photojournalistic exploration of tradespeople and a detailed look at the experience and legacy their hands reveal. Below are the worn and stained hands of a silversmith.
