A Handmade Life, In Search of Simplicity by Bill Copperthwaite

0/5 0 reviews

This is what the back cover says:

William Coperthwaite was a teacher, builder, designer and writer who explored the possibilities of true simplicity on a homestead on the north coast of Maine. In the spirit of Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson and Helen and Scott Nearing, Coperthwaite fashioned a livelihood of integrity and completeness-buying almost nothing, providing for his own needs, and serving as a guide and companion to hundreds of apprentices drawn to his unique way of being.

A Handmade Life carries Coperthwaite’s experiments with hand tools, hand-grown and gathered food, and handmade shelter, clothing and furnishings out into the world to challenge and inspire.  The writing is both philosophical and practical, exploring themes of beauty, work education and design while giving instruction on the hand-crafting of the necessities of life.  Richly illustrated with luminous colour photographs by Peter Forbes.

A Handmade Life is a moving and inspirational testament to a new practice of old ways of life.
