    Whether seeking instruction or inspiration, interested in social history or simply curling up in an armchair and daydreaming, the reader will find Lost Crafts to be a fascinating treasury of pastimes from a bygone age.

    And, as awareness grows of our environmental footprints, these sustainable pursuits are increasingly relevant to the modern world.
