Detailed Description

The Difference Makers: 30 Contemporary Makers, 30 Remarkable Stories. Author, Marc Adams

Since 1993, Marc Adams has invited hundreds of the best craftsmen and women to teach at his woodworking school in Franklin, Indiana. Every year, thousands of students soak up the instruction from a who's who list of woodworkers and artists in multiple disciplines. Every year, Marc has expanded the school and brought in a different mix of new instructors and veteran ones. As a result, he has figured out who is the best. He has seen their work and seen them at work.

Now Marc has selected the 30 best men and women makers that he has worked with for his new book, The Difference Makers: 30 Contemporary Makers, 30 Remarkable Stories. It is a sweeping journey into the work and lives of a diverse group of people, from pure traditional woodworkers to people whose brain is from the future: Furniture makers, Toolmakers, Luthiers, Sculptors, Engravers.

Each chapter reads like a short biographical novel - recounting the person's life and how they became the artisan they are today. Then Marc offers an analysis and interpretation of their work - why it's special - and tells a few stories about what they are like in the workshop. To complete it all, there is a gallery of the person's work. Even if you never read a single word of The Difference Makers, you will spend hours poring over the photos!

The Difference Makers is 11" x 11" to allow reproduction of the images to be as large as possible. It is printed on a heavy and coated #100 stock, the pages are sewn together and bound with fiber tape, hardbound with the boards covered in cotton cloth, and wrapped with a long-wearing full-color dust jacket. It is made in the United States (Tennessee) using domestic materials.
