This is a tremendous book. A generous story of making, looking, travelling and growing up... * Edmund de Waal *
This month we're excited about ... Jeweller Alex Monroe's memoir. 'I loved his accounts of childhood escapades, his honesty about feeling shy at big events and his admission that, for his, real satisfaction comes not from glitzy parties but from seeing a stranger on a train wearing one of his creation.' Recommended * Psychologies *
A hidden gem ... A good deal more than a memoir. It is difficult to think of a text that better describes the way in which lived experience is translated by high craftsmanship into art ... I imagine its being rediscovered with delight in some dusty book case a century hence and hailed as a classic * Spectator *
A wonderful book, a hymn to the pleasurable process of making things * The Times *
Just as delicate and golden as his famous pieces - a heartfelt celebration of creativity, craftsmanship and love * Harper's Bazaar *
