Product description

This is the second "Made by Hand "guide by stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk. The first, "Paris: Made by Hand," received an ecstatic reception around the world from magazines such as "British House & Garden," "Vogue Living," and "Martha Stewart Living," and on dozens and dozens of design blogs from design*sponge to decor8. "Amsterdam: Made by Hand "takes readers to dozens of boutiques, studios, and workshops offering not only newly created items fashioned by hand, but also vintage objects and found objects that may have been reworked by a talented artist. Also included are shops providing exclusive European supplies if you want to make your own objects: fabric, vintage silk tassels, yarn, handmade buttons, flowers in feathers and silk, and more. Pia describes her book the best: "As a stylist, I am always on the lookout for objects that are distinctive and alluring--which is why I adore all things handmade. "Amsterdam: Made by Hand "is an insider's guide where you'll discover Dutch ateliers tucked away on the cobble stoned backstreets of the old canal district, and boutiques that Dutch designers and stylists have kept well-hidden inside their black books. . . until now. Between its pages you can expect to find woodworkers, flower artists, jewelry designers, dressmakers, ceramicists, and more: with the backdrop of Amsterdam's beautiful canals and wonky buildings, you can expect to see this quaint old city in a whole new light." This is a book for all professional designers and decorators and lovers of design and decorating, lovers of all things handmade, the chic and unique, and of course Amsterdam.

Review quote

""Amsterdam: Made by Hand "is the second such book by the Australian stylist and photographer Pia Jane Bijkerk, who specializes in photographing still life. Amsterdam's village-like warren of old shops yielded hundreds of interesting objects that serve as the subjects for her work. The book is divided into ten 'Wanders' that take the reader through cobblestoned backstreets of the old canal district, where there are woodworkers, jewelry designers, dressmakers, ceramicists and more...The book should appeal to both traveler and interior decorator." --"Pittsburgh Tribune Review" "Australian stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk proudly shows off the artisan ateliers, workshops and stores of her adopted city of Amsterdam in this latest book. It's the second in her Made By Hand series; the first covered Bijkerk's previous home town, Paris. What makes this new volume so appealing are the photos accompanying each of the lovingly written entries." --"Inside Out" (Australia) "Bijkerk cov
