Fewer, Better Things : The Hidden Wisdom of Objects Paperback / softback


Things matter. So why are we losing touch with them?From the former director of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York comes a timely and passionate case for the role of the well-designed object in the digital age.

In this delightful exploration of craft in its many forms, curator and scholar Glenn Adamson explores how raw materials, tools, design and technique come together to produce objects of beauty and utility.

A thoughtful meditation on the value of care and attention in an age of disappearing things, Fewer, Better Things invites us to reconnect with the physical world and its objects.
