The HÅNDVÆRK bookazine deals with crafts and design. The growing focus on globalization and digitization sparks a yearning for analogue and tangible processes and products. The two annual issues of the HÅNDVÆRK bookazine invite the reader into the analogue landscape with stories about skilled, dedicated makers, artisans, designers and communicators. The bookazine has a Scandinavian perspective and a global outlook.
Issue no. 2 focuses on textile. Rigetta Klint has met with textile designers, weavers, hatters and fashion designers and tell their stories in the bookazine.
