Editor’s letter

The artisanal gesture has been rediscovered so often it’s become almost banal. But put aside the clichés and look at it, look at it carefully. It quivers, sighs, sings, flies, escapes, breathes, rejoices, embraces, fades. A material is transformed, the air resonates, the hand reaps the fruit of its work. You only have to forget about it, and the gesture that is true becomes an image in the mind’s eye.
