FIRST EDITION. "Helene Farnault, art specialist in France, and photographer Alexis Lecomte gather in this book portraits of more than 30 masters and craftsmen. Far from being simply the guardians of a rare or exceptional know-how, these master glassmakers, lace makers, marquetry ... embody the modernity, the creation and the French excellence all over the world, in particular through the manufacture of products luxury. It is this fabulous cultural, artistic and human treasure that this book beautifully puts into images" (the publisher, translated).
