Significant Figures
In Art and Craft Today

by Derek Reay

This book contains portraits of 86 artists and craftsmen who in some way or another have made an impact in their chosen field. They are highly regarded by their peers, have achieved the highest awards their industry can bestow, and a few are the last remaining practitioners of their art or craft; the last of their line. They have all been photographed in their working environment. They live and work throughout England, Scotland and Wales. The accompanying texts outline their careers, achievements and how they go about their work. This book is unique in that a very wide range of art and craft is represented under one cover.

"... However even I was delighted and surprised by the sheer variety and breadth of crafts and disciplines that this book entails, all of which - for the time being anyway - are still prevalent within the UK today". From the Foreword by David Linley.
