Best Design and Innovation Christmas Presents.

The holidays are approaching and a great source of presents for those ??reatives?in your life can be found at the site of Core77, the terrific design site.

One of my favorites is a book—yep, a book—on craft. By Richard Sennett, it’s called, appropriately, The Craftsman. Here’s the Amazon quote: ” craft isn’t about things but about values, not about superior skill but about doing a job well for its own sake. Think of it as a theory of sustainable labor in the age of hyper-capitalism.” In an age of authenticity, localism, downsizing and moderation, craft is back.

OK, I also like the red patent moleskin notebook too.
