COPYCAT? The New Artisans




It must be coincidence. Right? (An invitation I designed for a client in 2009 and a photo-creation by Moi.)
And then, "the cover of a book" that's getting all kinds of 'blogtime'. Unsettling, pondering or a generous compliment. Who knows? (Great minds create alike.)

This book captures the new mood – a return to a preference for the unique and the handmade.Design expert and acclaimed blogger Olivier Dupon has sourced the cream ofthe contemporary design world from all over Europe, Australia and the United States, profiling 75 artisans who use craft techniques, rather than massproduction methods, to create stylish, whimsical, covetable objects. Hundreds of colour photographs feature a huge variety of crafts, including art,ceramics, furniture, glasswork, jewelry, lighting, metalwork, paper craft, textiles and woodwork. 

Olivier Dupon began his career at Christian Dior. He expanded his expertise in the fields of fashion and lifestyle by working as a buyer and product manager for several large retail companies before opening his own boutique. Based in Australia, he now scouts international markets in search of design, art and craft objects and projects to feature on his blog, Dossier37.tumblr.com
