Or maybe best said by a reader:
"HÅNDVÆRK contains timeless themes that bridge the past, ourselves, and the future.
It offers an immersive experience without any undertone of lecturing.
Rigetta Klint frames the stories in a way that makes them accessible to everyone.
HÅNDVÆRK invites the readers on a journey that provides a growing understanding
and appreciation of all the design and craft objects that surround us.
Things and processes which are otherwise often taken for granted are explored and revealed.
Through her stories and photographs, the invisible becomes clear.
I am left with a feeling of great humility towards the insights I have gained."
The independent HÅNDVÆRK bookazine is made by designer, writer, and photographer Rigetta Klint. She worked professionally with crafts and design for more than 30 years, originally as a practising designer and for the past 15 years as a brand consultant, writer, and photographer.
Each issue of the HÅNDVÆRK bookazine focuses on a specific theme. The theme of HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 7 is 'construction'. Issue no. 7 features interviews with architects, designers, and active craftspeople from fields such as blacksmithing, bricklaying, carpentry, and thatching. They all focus on the construction industry's high carbon footprint and the need to find solutions. The reduction of CO2 emissions is also a key issue when the bookazine takes the reader behind the scenes of the development of wall tiles with a high content of crushed, used bricks. As usual, this issue of the bookazine also includes stories about textiles, glassware, food, and drink. As a special feature, it further contains Rigetta Klint's journal notes from the creation of the issue.
